Gardens especially non National Trust Gardens are still struggling to attract visitors because of Covid 19. Find out if it is now safe to visit gardens and have that break away from home.
Your decision to go garden visiting very much depends on your own health situation. I am 70, seem to be in good health and over the last few weeks have been visiting gardens across the South of England.
I can tell you that all the gardens were very organised with sensible precautions in place, plus garden lovers keeping their distance from each other.
Some of the tea rooms are open again, but if you are worried just take a picnic and a couple of chairs.
If you are considering a break then a holiday cottages may be a good alternative to a hotel. These all have to follow strict covid 19 guidelines. Last week we rented a beautiful cottage near Hay on Wye and were not disappointed, it was spotlessly clean.
We did however take our own cutlery, plates and pillows! (but I am sure we would have been fine anyway.
