Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden
DELIGHTFUL NATURAL WOODLAND AND WATER GARDEN WITH PRIVATE BROAD.
The Sensory Garden is the first thing you’ll see as you walk into Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. It has been designed with our visually and mobility impaired customers in mind.
In spring the garden 'springs' into life again. The primroses come into flower along the Broads Walk and the woodland paths. In May the glorious sight of bluebells will delight you, and our spectacular candelabra primulas, together with azaleas and rhododendrons.
There's lots of activity among the water birds and if you are lucky you may see a flash of vivid blue as the kingfisher dives for its prey.
In Summer there are flowers and shrubs including hydrangeas – in particular along our new Hydrangea Walk – foxgloves and many other wild flowers. Several varieties of butterflies can be seen on our butterfly path.
Autumn brings its own special pleasure, the glow of the golds, reds and browns of the trees as they shed their leaves. The stark contrast of bare branches in Winter has a different kind of beauty, and withering birds come to shelter in the broads.
In December you can buy Christmas trees, wreaths and gifts and Father Christmas will visit before Christmas with gifts for children.
Fairhaven has three miles of peaceful walks. Boat trips are available on our Private Broad and the Public South Walsham Broad from Easter to the end of October, including trips to St Benet's Abbey.
There is a plant sales area which specialises in woodland and bog plants, a Gift Shop and Kingfisher Tearoom for morning coffees, lunches and afternoon teas, using the best of local produce. Free entry to tearroom, shop and plant sales.
Dogs welcome on leads (small charge for poop scoop).
2018 entry charges: adult £6.85, concessions £6.60, child £3.95 (under 5 free).
Please note we close at 4pm in the winter.
The tearoom opens at 9.15am every day for breakfast (served until 12noon).
We open until 9pm on Wednesdays from May to the end of August.
