Enjoy a stroll through a garden.

Washlands, at Prayors Hill, Sible Hedingham is an informal, tranquil garden of approximately one acre which offers good views over rolling countryside.

The garden features a recently restored horse pond and possible the largest and oldest pear tree in Essex. Wide herbaceous, shrub and woodland borders include roses and paeonies. There are also many young and mature trees to enhance the garden.

The woodland walk is not suitable for wheelchair users.

The garden is open on June 29 and July 6 from 2pm until 6pm. Homemade teas will be available. Admission is £3.50 for adults, with children going free.
