Dingestow Court Open Gardens

Free Gardens, Rarely Opened!

Join Gwent Wildlife Trust's staff and trustees in our annual open day to visit our headquarters and take in the wonderful gardens of Dingestow Court, hosted by the owner, Helen Bosanquet. As usual, there will be plenty to do for all the family - guided walks, children's activities, stalls, refreshments - as well as the chance to meet the people who work so hard behind the scenes to keep our reserves in good order for the wildlife of Gwent.

This year, the rich gardens of Dingestow Court are filled with flowers, fruit trees, birds, butterflies and bumblebees, the gardens are only open for one special day each year. Dingestow Court is the estate of the Bosanquet family and home and headquarters of Gwent Wildlife Trust. It extends over a thousand acres with an imposing grade two listed manor house. But the court's centrepiece is six acres of serene historic gardens, laid out in the mid 19th century by the famous Victorian horticulturalist and landscape designer Edward Milner.

We’ll have activities for the entire family – face painting, crafts, birdbox making, moth trapping, guided walks, and plenty more. There will also be the chance for families to investigate the creatures that make their home in Dingestow Court 's lakes and ponds.

We’ll have displays of various Gwent Wildlife Trust undertakings, such as our new exciting and very popular Orchard Project and other organisations will be there too, so you can learn more about Hands Around The World, Gwent Badger Group, Forest of Dean Beekeepers and the British Trust for Ornithology.

We’ll even have tea and cakes available – always a favourite part of the day.
