To All HGT Members from the Events Team

We are proposing to have an HGT coach visit to Devon gardens in May 2018.  This will go ahead provided there is enough interest in such a trip.

We will be based at the 3 star Best Western Hotel in Tiverton, on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis.  There is comfortable coaching throughout.  There will be a limit of 25 people.  Lunches and insurance are not included in the prices quoted.

There are two options.  Either we go for a 2 night/3day tour or a 3night/4 day tour.


The gardens to be visited are:

 Option A

31 May to 3 June 2018 – 3 nights

£489 members/£509 non-members.  Single room supplement £120

Cothay Manor, Plaz Metaxu, RHS Rosemoor, Castle Hill Gardens, Holcombe Court, Cadhay, The Garden House, Wildside Garden & Nursery,  Endsleigh House Garden

 Option B

31 May to 2 June 2018 – 2 nights

£359 members/£379 non-members. Single room supplement £80

The above gardens but not The Garden House, Wildside Garden & Nursery, Endsleigh House Garden


 These are all top rate gardens and we have been advised and guided by  the Devon Gardens Trust, who in some cases will effect introductions for us, which should enhance our visiting experience.

As yet,  we have not received sufficient responses to our recent e-mail notification about the trip to ‘press the button’ on this.   So if you think the trip might appeal, do please telephone or email:

Leslie Shaw  (tel:  01962 841592 e-mail:  missles@hotmail.com) or

Sue Giles (tel: 02381 787159 e-mail:  suegiles50@yahoo.co.uk)

as soon as possible, letting us know whether you would prefer Option A or Option B.   There is no firm commitment at this time.

However, in order to secure accommodation, we would need to ask for firm reservations  in August.  At that time a deposit of £75 per person would be payable.

We hope there will be enough of you to go ahead with what should be a special tour of these wonderful gardens.
