The Sitting Spiritually Garden

Open Weekend

We're delighted to be hosting another of our highly requested Open Weekends

The garden will be open from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 

Saturday 27th - Monday 29th May 2023

Take a Stroll in the Garden

Gardens are special places with individual atmospheres, histories and magic. The Sitting Spiritually garden is in a coastal, hillside location where we had a desire to create a feeling of intimacy without obscuring or distracting from the beautiful scenery beyond.

In late May, the garden will be sparkling with the Libertia flowers set against the fresh red foliage of the Cotinus. Spires of foxgloves will be vying for the limelight alongside the nodding Aquilegias. It is becoming an immersive space of fresh foliage with ornamental grasses, masses of perennials and friendly giants such as the cardoons.

The Sitting Spiritually Garden near Lyme Regis acts as our show garden for our range of Swing SeatsBenches and the Swinging Day Bed.

On show will be  a range of our furniture and we will have a number of fantastic special offers across the Sitting Spiritually Range for orders placed over the Open Weekend.

The garden will be open on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th & Bank Holiday Monday 29th May, from 11am-5pm on the three days. 

Entrance and parking are free, as are teas and coffees and perhaps a little cake or two! We do encourage all those attending to make a donation to the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust

Local Artist Exhibitions

There will be a range of local artists attending the open weekend, who will be exhibiting some of their work around the garden. It's a wonderful opportunity to meet and support local talent from the Lyme Regis and Dorset area. So far confirmed...

  Useful Information

We, therefore advise that you check the weather forecast for the day of your visit, consider the nature of the event and the effects of any inclement weather on surface conditions, and wear suitable clothing and footwear. Well-behaved dogs and children are very welcome! Unfortunately, the garden is not wheelchair accessible.
