Wye House Garden
The Wye House Garden is open from 9.00am until dusk all year round and is situated between Barn Street and Kelham Gardens. It is open to visitors and residents alike.
In the centre of the grounds is a lovely lawn surrounded by gardens, perfect for a family picnic where you can admire a natural pond which is a wonderful wildlife habitat. If you have very young children, the toddlers play area is excellent and parents can sit and enjoy the atmosphere while their children play safely.
There is historical significance to the Wye Gardens too. Stone pillars, which look strangely out of place in the gardens, are supposedly the original pillars from the 19th Century Town Hall rescued from the demolition of the building following a fire.
Another interesting ruin is the stone and flint archway but whether this is genuinely historic, or a modern folly isn’t yet determined.
In 2015 and 2016 Wye House Gardens was awarded with a Pride in Parks Award by South West in Bloom
Please be aware that all housing surrounding Wye gardens is private property and should be treated respectfully (only the gardens, play area and pond are public amenity). Consequently, we ask that visitors follow some polite requests:
Access to the gardens from Barn Street should be via the gated path not the larger vehicle entrance, which is private property.
Bicycles should not be ridden on the permissive paths through the gardens.
No dogs or ball games permitted. These are public gardens and must be treated with respect.
