There are three distance options for participants; 10 mile walk and garden visit, 4 mile walk and garden visit or a 1 mile walk family trail and garden visit. Whichever route you choose, this promises to be a great day out for all the family.walk

The gardens which are entirely maintained by volunteers, comprise of a walled kitchen garden dating back to the 18th century, a wild flowers area for the bees, formal gardens and beautiful carpets of snowdrops in the spring. 

As part of your visit a delicious cream tea is included with each ticket with jam provided by Wilkin & Sons (also known as Tiptree Jam). Or if you prefer you can just simply explore the gardens at your leisure and then enjoy your cream tea.

The gardens are situated a few minutes outside the historic market town of Great Dunmow. To take part simply complete the registration form below and your event pack will be on its way!

Limited places available so please book early to avoid disappointment. Adults and children can take part but as most of the route is off-road it is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. All entrants aged 16 years or under must be accompanied by an adult. Well behaved dogs are welcome both on the walks and on a lead in the gardens.
