We are a much loved perfectly formed 18th century Palladian villa nestled in 65 acres of multiple award- winning gardens – the birthplace of the natural English garden. We welcome hundreds of visitors each day, even more now during the Covid-19 pandemic, to enjoy their daily exercise in our beautiful green sanctuary. A very special place.
We have remained open so every day we continue with essential maintenance caring for our gardens, lake and trees, home to our native wildlife, insects and visiting migratory birds.
Behind the scenes we are also supporting our local community by harvesting our produce from our walled Kitchen Garden and donating to Hounslow Community Food Hub. And continue our daily checks and maintenance of the House and buildings in the grounds ready for when we can re-open.
We have committed and retained our gardening and grounds team so that we can carry out essential maintenance and gardening of our grounds, buildings and House.
Only 25% of our income comes from grants guaranteed by London Borough of Hounslow and English Heritage. Each year we earn £750,000 from our café, weddings and events which supports our running costs.
With the loss of this income we are carefully managing our costs but despite these efforts we still have a shortfall of about £500,000 this year.
