Behind a 150 year old wall, situated just outside of Wareham, Dorset, sits 3.5 acres in the midst of transformation. Carey’s Secret Garden opened its gate to the public in May this year. This wild, walled Victorian garden was rediscovered in 2019 and has undergone extensive restoration to re-imagine the gardens for a modern age.
Carey’s Secret Garden is a welcoming space that aims to inspire a return to nature. Created with expertise in Rewilding, Permaculture and Natural Gardening, Carey is open to an intimate number of visitors every Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10 am till 4 pm. Or enjoy unlimited garden visits with our Annual membership which includes a 10% discount on all courses and events – see membership details below.
Set against the backdrop of the spectacular Isle of Purbeck, Carey’s Secret Garden remains a closely guarded secret due to its unique habitat and sensitive wildlife projects. Visitors can expect to see a young and exciting space that they can return to enjoy seeing it grow over the coming years.
