Dogs on leads welcome in the fair and garden

In 2020 we are back for our early plant fair at this lovely, friendly venue. There are plans for development in the garden so watch this space and we may be able to slot in a pop-up fair in the summer depending on how the plans progress.

The 2 acre Walled Kitchen Garden at Sugnall Hall near Eccleshall Staffs dates from 1738 and has been restored as a working kitchen garden producing fruit and vegetables to serve in the tearoom and for homemade jams and chutneys on sale at the garden.

The network of paths and tracks, starting from the lane outside the walled garden, takes walkers right to the heart of our rural idyll. There are several kissing gates to extend our network and provide a number of circular walks of different lengths past the pools. Ask at the walled kitchen garden for maps.

Featured on the BBC series Great British Garden Revival
