RHS Rosemoor is just 11 miles from our cottage and lodges, and makes a relaxing day out, or you can combine it with other attractions in nearby Torrington (walks, exploring the Tarka Trail at Puffing Billy, Dartington crystal, The Plough Arts Centre). You can get there by bus from Winkleigh – the stagecoach 5B service stops right at the gate.
This is a fairly accessible venue too – lots of local mums buy membership because it’s a relatively easy place to push a pushchair around, and there are places to stop for tea as well as places for little feet to pick up speed.
See formal and rose gardens, a potager, the vegetable plot, a foliage and a plantsman’s garden, and even a winter garden.
Open every day of the year except Christmas day. Hours are 10:00 until 17:00 from September to March and 10:00 until 18:00 in the summer months. Last admission one hour before closing. There’s a cafe, shop, loos etc.
Free to RHS members, otherwise adults cost £6, kids under 6 go free, ages 6-16 cost £2.
Guide dogs only
We liked the vegetable garden best!
