Re-opening of the Gardens at Teasses

By Garden, Teasses Estate, Visits

Our Gardens have re-opened at the weekend and a what fitting way to celebrate #NationalGardeningWeek!

We have really missed having visitors and it has been a tough, long winter for all of us – it was lovely to see all of you who made it out at the weekend and we look forward to seeing many more of you in the months ahead. Our Gardens will be open 10am to 4pm, on Wednesdays and the first full weekend of every month.

Our new partnership with our friends at Candide Gardening means you can now also purchase e-tickets online, limiting the handling of cash and the issues with having to carry exact change. You can also easily upgrade your day ticket to a membership – it couldn’t be easier, thanks Candide!

When you visit our Gardens this Spring and Summer don’t forget to plan a stop at our Stables to see the newly opened Photographic Display “Teasses 25 Years”. 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the family purchasing the Estate and setting the course on their ambitious restoration project – we decided to celebrate this incredible achievement with a display of photographs, documents and memorabilia. “Teasses 25 Years” is included in your admission fee to the Gardens – we just love sharing Teasses’ story with you!

Next weekend opening: June, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th

Buy your tickets to the Gardens here and see you all soon!

Gamekeeping minutes – At the ‘lochan’

By Sporting, Teasses Estate, Visits

Our Gamekeeping Team have been busy replenishing our ‘lochan’ with trout, to provide sporting opportunities for our fishing syndicate and occasional day rods. Our beautiful trout is sourced from Belhaven Trout Company  and has been keeping our fishermen happy year or year. In the video below you can appreciate the water clarity of our ‘lochan’ and catch a glimpse of our wonderful views and wildlife.

You will see Jordan slowly and gently releasing the trout into the ‘lochan’ to limit the shock the fish might experience when changing environment, water temperature and PH levels. This is very important at Teasses.

Kenny, our Head Gamekeeper, also brings you some footage of our resident toad population. After emerging from their overwintering sites, toads tend to return to ancestral breeding ponds along the same routes each year – they have definitely come out in large numbers this Spring.

Our fishing season at Teasses runs from February to October and the longer and sunny Spring days offer a great opportunity to head out on the ‘lochan’. For more information on our fishing syndicate and day rods, please get in touch at [email protected]. The ‘lochan’ is in view of Hall Teasses, our self-catering lodge – a perfect combination if you are looking for a sporting staycation.

Garden Club of America

By Visits

We had the absolute pleasure of hosting the Garden Club of America at Teasses today, 25th July 2018. The group led by Julia Fortescue and Anne Chambers were led through the garden by Head Gardener Craig Cameron and Assistant Head Gardener Lewis Rodgers.

High points for the group were seeing the fading flowers of Cardiocrinum, Giant Himalayan Lily, in Sir Fraser’s Garden. The vibrant scarlet flowers of Tropaeolum speciosum growing effortlessly through the dense yew hedges surrounding the Sundial Garden.The individual gardens dedicated to members of the family, each full of character, were a particular joy for the visitors to see and gave real insight into the nature of the family gardens here at Teasses.

We look forward to hosting the Garden Club of America again in the future.
