Visiting the Garden by Arrangement

If you are part of a larger group, you can arrange to visit the garden when it's convenient to you and you'll have the garden exclusively to yourselves. No individual booking, no timed tickets, no inconvenient dates, just you, and the garden, and lots of cake.

Review the information below specifically about visiting by arrangement, then get in touch to start arranging your visit.

Group Visitor Information

If you are responsible for arranging a group visit, please read the following information that will give you the details you need to determine whether a group visit by arrangement is suitable for you.

Car Parking

The garden is located on a quiet residential estate with ample on-street parking. Later arrivals may need to park further away on the estate and walk an extra minute or two to the garden. Please be considerate of of other estate residents when parking.


Please be aware there are separate entrance and exit roads to the estate where the Garden is located. Be aware of the working 30mph traffic cameras on Sandhurst high street. Refer to Google Maps at the bottom of the page for directions. Use Sat-Nav postcode GU47 8PN.


While the on-street parking can easily accommodate cars and mini-busses, there is unfortunately insufficient space for larger (25-seater+) coaches. The entrance/exit to the estate also prevents access to these larger vehicles.

Disabled access

We regret that we cannot safely accommodate wheelchair users. Those with restricted mobility should be aware that there is a gravel drive to the Garden entrance followed by some short steps. The rest of the garden is gently sloping and mostly accessible via grass paths.

Group Numbers

There is a minimum requirement of 10 people for a visit by arrangement. Final group numbers must be confirmed prior to visiting to allow for sufficient catering.

Garden Tours

Garden tours are not currently available but will be considered in the future if there is sufficient demand.


Once a date for a visit by arrangement is confirmed, it can be cancelled at any time up to two weeks before. The Garden can cancel a group visit in the event of personal or other emergency, (including e.g. severe weather warnings). All money, less incurred expenses, is refunded in the event of a cancellation.


Full payment by cash, cheque or BACS is required up to two weeks before the visit date. The Garden reserves the right to cancel a group visit if payment has not been received within this time. Cashless is accepted on site for drinks and cakes.

What's Included

The group entry price per person includes entry to the garden until close, one slice of cake and one drink. You're not limited to just one though, extra drinks and cake are available to purchase for ravenous appetites.

Plant Sales

There may be a small selection of plants and seed for sale, depending on the visit date, but this is not guaranteed and should not be expected. Please do not take seeds and cuttings from the plants in the Garden.

Pre-Visit Visit

If you are responsible for arranging a group visit, you are welcome to visit the Garden prior to any agreed date to determine any details you require. Please contact us to arrange such a visit (of course, at no cost).


The Garden is not licensed to sell alcohol due to the significant amount of paperwork involved in obtaining the legal permits required; in addition, please do not bring your own.


As we are a private Garden, bathroom facilities are not available to visitors. Hand sanitiser is available on request. Domestic-sanitised crockery and cutlery is used for the refreshments.


The Garden at 13 Broom Acres is covered by the Public Liability Insurance provided by the National Garden Scheme. Every effort is made to sign-post hazards such as steps and uneven surfaces to keep visitors safe and prevent accidents. There is a First-Aid kit on site.


Photography for personal, non-commercial use is allowed in the Garden. For commercial photography, please get in touch to agree arrangements prior to your visit. As a Garden visitor, you may be in photographs taken by the Garden helpers and volunteers, to be used for non-commercial purposes.

Food Allergies

As a private garden, we cannot fully label all ingredients in the refreshments served nor guarantee them to be free of certain allergens. Please take care and ask for advice if you feel you may be at risk.

More Questions?

If you have more questions, please get in touch using the details at the bottom of this page.


While we take care to ensure the information on this site is accurate, it may not be, nor does it constitute a legally binding contract between the Garden and visitor in any form.

The Garden is a domestic private residence and opens non-commercially, for charitable events.

Should any information on this web site contradict that provided by the National Garden Scheme, the latter takes precedence.

With that out of the way, we look forward to hearing from you and welcoming your group to the Garden.
