Garden Open for the National Garden Scheme


Explore the the sunny, dry garden or find some shade under the trees in the Spring garden, carpeted in purples and blues by bluebells, Brunnera and Honesty. Catch the last of our colourful tulips and enjoy the glorious blossom on our giant Horse Chestnut and pretty Japanese Cherry.

Enjoy home made teas and cakes in support of Christian Aid. The studios of book artist and printer Heather Hunter and award winning portrait photographer Paul Wilksinon will also be open to explore.
