The Secret Gardens were created by the present owners Christine & Mike Liddle working to improve the environment left by a heritage of coal mining and intensive farming. The gardens are a series of inspirational gardens within a large rural garden, displaying a wide variety of hardy plants to provide colour, scent etc. to suit the wide range of diverse conditions found here.
No garden ticket is necessary to visit the coffee shop, gift shop or nursery sales area so call in for coffee and browse our range of hardy garden plants grown 650 ft above sea level. No dogs allowed in our open plan coffee shop, but plenty of outdoor seating for you and your pet with orders brought to your table
Groups welcome – please read our ‘Groups’ page if you are more than 16 members. The 3 acre gardens are situated in rural Gateshead between Beamish Open Air Museum & the Tanfield Steam Railway.
You can enjoy the gardens, enjoy the views & look for inspiration.
