The Teasses ‘Countryside Classroom’ has been developed as a series of workshops aimed at sharing our team’s botanical and gardening knowledge with the wider public. We also run events focused on estate management topics and creative arts such as photography. The ‘Countryside Classroom’ offers a range of workshops to include beginners’ classes, garden design and seasonal themes. More information on our current workshops, is available below – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions, suggestions or enquiries.

Teasses Hallowe’en Spooky Trail
October 30th, 2021 | Slot 1 : 16:00-17:30 |Slot 2: 18:30-20:00
If you enjoyed our virtual Ghostly Tales last year, you won’t want to miss our Spooky Hallowe’en Trail at Teasses this year! Our storyteller will lead a creepy crawl through our gardens, telling the tales of spooky goings-on. Don’t be surprised if you spot a ghostly figure peeking out of the house windows…some of past owners might still be around! At the end of the trail we will meet back in the Walled Garden for some light refreshments. This event is family and kids-friendly. Please bring a torch with you and wear suitable outdoor footwear.
Due to car parking capacity, we will be running this event twice, in two slots (16:00 and 18:30). To make sure everyone can access the event we will be charging this ‘by car’ instead of per person and 25 car spaces will be available per each slot.
PRICE: £20.00 per car / maximum 25 cars per slot
The Floristry Workshop with Craig was an absolute delight. Walking round the beautiful garden, the group collected a huge variety of flowers, then were shown how to create at least two amazing bouquets. A thoroughly enjoyable event, my second workshop at Teasses, and I look forward to the next one in September. Thank you - and the cake was delicious too.Anne
Had a wonderful, if slightly damp, morning. Had the run (except for the poisonous and extremely rare flowers) of the garden for cutting. Enough for 3 enormous bunches. Great time!Rona
My husband and I attended your open day this afternoon and I thought that I should make contact to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the event.
We had never been to Teasses Estate before and of course found it to be a stunning location.
This is the first 'event' that we have attended since the covid pandemic started and I am pleased to say that we both felt comfortable and safe with the number of people in the setting, the general tranquil ambience that was prevalent and the measures that had been put in place to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus.
It was lovely to be able to appreciate a sociable afternoon with friends, experience some of the activities and entertainment that was laid on, enjoy the summer weather and stunning scenery and feel totally relaxed.Dawn
Ticket in hand.
Once again thank you so much for your fantastic customer service.Sue
I went on the Summer Solstice walk through the gardens and woods last night led by Craig, the Head Gardener. His knowledge of the flora, fauna and history of the Estate was delivered with enthusiasm and a love of his surroundings. I'd recommend a visit.Alicia
