Dogs on leads welcome in the fair and garden

In 2021 we are back for our early plant fair at this lovely, friendly venue for our 11th year.

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 a free map.
