The ornamental water gardens are planted with a variety of shrubs, perennials and water-loving species, and of course, contain the famous wishing well.
The springs that rise up at the foot of Friar Waddon Hill on the edge of the village are the life source for the abundant plant species and vegetation in the gardens. This water also feeds a series of ponds and waterfalls, which are home to our resident family of ducks (and one lonely moorhen!)
Wander around the garden pathways or pick a scenic spot to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the gardens. Before you leave, don’t forget to make a wish at the Wishing Well! You can find out more about the history of the well

Parking is very limited in the village of Upwey. St. Nicholas church kindly allow use of their car park to the public and there is a donation box in the car park. However, we would kindly ask our patrons who use the church car park to park their vehicles with consideration and care in order to maximise space and not to cause inconvinience to other users of the car park. We thank you in advance for your consideration.
Our stunning sub-tropical water gardens provide you with the perfect venue for your romantic wedding ceremony followed by a drinks reception where your guests can wander through the gardens or relax beside the river, ornamental ponds or the wishing well its self. Your wedding breakfast will be unforgetable as you dine inside, or out, with simply delicious food and beautiful views of the gardens.
