The Japanese Garden at Cowden

The Japanese Garden and The Stewart Woodland are currently open 6 days a week (closed on Tuesdays), from
10.30am to 5.00pm

This is a ticketed estate. Please book through our website in advance as tickets are limited. We ask that you only arrive onto the estate within your booked time slot, thank you.
After exploring, why not visit our Tearoom where we serve delicious lunches and cakes, all made in house. Or, if you have brought your own, we have some great picnic areas available.

Please be aware that it is Assistance Dogs only that are allowed in the Japanese Garden and Christie Walk. However, dogs on leads are very welcome to enjoy the Woodland Walk, Lime Tree Avenue and outside seating areas. 

What's on

Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

With the Cherry blossom now on its way out, we will start to see the arrival of our Azaleas and Rhododendrons. There are already pops of colour appearing! To make the most of the colours we recommend booking between late May and early June. Feel free to give us a call for updates before booking.

"Taki Handa was the first and only woman to have designed a Japanese garden of this nature. The fact that she was appointed in 1908 is of significant interest worldwide."
