What it's like to work here

Rowallane is a captivating natural garden. It was laid out from the mid1860s by the Reverend John Moore and afterwards by his nephew, the plantsman and selector Hugh Armytage Moore, who established and developed connections with seedsmen and botanic gardens throughout the world. Within its 52 acres there is something for everyone. Whatever the season this inspirational garden offers a range of walks to enjoy form a short stroll through the sheltered Walled Garden to long walks around the magical woodland area and Rock Garden Wood. There is also a café and a second hand bookshop to discover.

You’ll love leading a small team, and with your passion for food and ability to identify new income opportunities, you’ll assist the Food & Beverage Manager to deliver an excellent experience for all our visitors at our special place.
