Following a sensitive redevelopment, the large Walled Garden has been re-imagined and nowadays it is a relaxing contemporary garden designed to connect visitors of all ages with the beautiful natural surroundings. There is a lot of variety in the large Walled Garden, including both recreational and planting areas.
The large Walled Garden is home to a state of the art children’s play area and the Seed café outdoor dining terrace. There are garden benches positioned throughout the garden for our visitors to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
Just as the gardeners in the Parnell’s era would have done, our dedicated culinary team grow and harvest seasonal crops here in the fresh vegetable beds throughout the year, along with an array of fresh herb which is subsequently used here at the Seed Café to inspire our seasonal menu.
Don’t forget to refill your own water bottle here at our water station, helping you to stay hydrated and helping us to support environmentally friendly practices.
The estate was known as Hayesville, until it was re-named Avondale Estate in the 1770’s.
