Open Gardens

Various dates throughout the year
Across the South West

Visit some of the South West's most beautiful gardens supporting Children's Hospice South West

With around 18 gardens opening across the South West in support of Children's Hospice South West, there’s plenty to see and do in this year.

Our open gardens include a diverse range of beautiful gardens; some not normally open to the public and many offering refreshments, cream teas, plant sales and even children's activities. Thank you to every garden, volunteer and supporter who has generously allowed for these special open garden days to take place.

CHSW Hospice Gardens

Being outside is a great sensory experience and many of the children at our hospices grin from ear to ear when they are taken outside. The gardens and open spaces at each of of our hospices are very special and unique, with stimulating sensory gardens that are visually vivid with sounds, smells and varying textures. There are also specially adapted areas for play that enable all children to have fun and explore the outdoors. Our gardens are a much loved feature with all our families, with staff always on hand to offer any support they need.
