Patrick's Patch

Our inspiring and productive garden that we've built, adjacent to Fairweather’s in Beaulieu High Street.

Year-round we grow a wide range of vegetables, fruit, herbs and cut flowers that are used in Steff’s Kitchen and Steff's to go.

Pop in and be inspired - it's free to come in and explore!







Our Head Gardener Rachel is supported by a loyal group of garden volunteers and Primary school children who regularly visit to learn gardening skills and understand where our food comes from.

“I love coming to the Patch. It’s never boring and really gives me inspiration and enthusiasm for my own projects at home” – Tracy Price




A visit to Patrick’s Patch can provide ideas and tips for your own garden.  See what fruit and vegetables grow well and perhaps you may see something growing, that will be new for you to try at home.

Alternatively, it's just a tranquil place to wander and relax.

“My partner and I discovered Patrick’s Patch completely by chance today.  I just wanted to say what a joy it was to discover this gem of a place.  I think it was one of the most inspiring and uplifting projects I’ve come across in a long time.  What a wonder place with such incredible goals.  I was genuinely blown away – and inspired to try and bring this concept to my own local community” – Ms D Moore

For the last 2 years, we are pleased to have won the award for the the 'Best Border' at the BBC Gardeners World Show held at Beaulieu Motor Museum.

Each time, Rachel and her wonderful team of volunteers and local school children have produced sustainable growing gardens, each year with a fabulous theme that wows the visitors and judges.
