The Model Garden
The model garden is a very important part of the Tea Garden. Here the visitors will be surprised and inspired. Special perennials, rare bulbs and uncommon summer annuals have been gathered in exciting combinations. The business card of Jacqueline van der Kloet.
The Tea House
The building which now houses the restaurant was built in 1875 to store munitions. It is now a multifunctional space. Only during the regular inspirational weekends it is used as a tea room. But it can also be rented to house business meetings, parties, afternoon tea’s, etc.
The Tea Garden is situated on the Bastion Bakkerschans which dates from 1674. Three times a year inspirational weekends are organized here: the Bulb Festival in April, an Art Weekend during Whitsun and an “a late summer day” in September, coinciding with Monument Day.
