NGS GARDEN OPEN DAYS 2019 - NEW DAY

Next year we will be opening the gardens under the NGS (National Garden Scheme) on  Saturday 1st June and Saturday 31st August 2019 (2-5pm both days). 

The NGS has approx 3,800 gardens that open across England and Wales and the scheme has raised over £22 million for nursing, caring and gardening charities, including Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillian Cancer Support, Help the Hospices and Parkinsons UK, over the last 10 years.

JUNE:

The Rhodendrons and Azaleas in the Ornamental Shrubbery should be in full bloom for this date. Please note this area has grass paths so appropriate footwear is advised. The West Garden will also be open for visitors to explore and tea and yummy homemade cakes will be on sale here.

AUGUST:

The West Garden beside the hall with its layout of formal beds with roses, mixed perennials and herbaceous borders should be at its best now. The Woodland Shrubbery to the East of the House will also be open to visitors to wander through the cool woodland paths with banks of mixed planting.

Entry will be £5 for adults, children are free and tea and cakes will be on sale to raise funds for Cherish and Borne – two premature baby charities.  Booking is not required for these events but please note that the house will NOT be open on these dates.
