Open Garden

During May 2024 we will open the garden's and parkland at Colstoun to the general public for the first time. The grounds will be open each weekend for between 4th May and 18th May. The open gardens will coincide with Colstoun Arts first exhibtion in The Coach House 'The Other Side' presenting the works of British Landscape Painter Joe Grieve.

Opening Times:

Sunday 10am-3pm

Bank Holiday Monday 10am-3pm

We hope to raise awareness for the garden work that is done at Colstoun providing free fruit and veg to members of the public through our shop The Mart Farm Shop in East Linton. Every summer & autumn we take up fruit and veg to the shop and give it away for free no catches, no purchases required and no judgement. we've been doing this since COVID started back in 2020 and it has been a great success growing each year in our offering and quality.

for many years we have depended on the hard work of WWOOFers (volunteers that work in growing gardens and farms) to develop and improve the walled garden to ultimately improve the offering we can provide in our free food initiative. this year changes to work and volunteer rules mean that we can no longer accept WWOOFers which is completely devastating for the garden.

Part of what we do in the garden at Colstoun is elements of rewilding combined with traditional manicured gardens. We have a number of wild meadows and fallen wood, spring walks that all combined with the more traditional lawns, terraces, walled garden and woodland of a traditional Victorian Stately Garden. We try to work together in harmony with nature to create an environment in the heart of East Lothian that is both beautiful and natural.

more information will continue to trickle through the month. keep an eye out on blog posts and social media.
