Skelton Open Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2017 so we don't have any recent event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 8 gardens opened Skelton-in-Cleveland, near Saltburn-by-Sea, Cleveland
Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June 2016

Heritage is the main theme - we have the beautiful gardens of the Old Rectory which ramble down to ancient woodland and are enhanced with Artistic Sculptures. We have the site of the ancient Mill with its mill race and stream rippling through the freshly planted gardens. Old established gardens, a newly landscaped garden, some terraced with outstanding views and the rambling grounds of Skelton Castle. The added bonus garden is on the site of old allotments - a garden and orchard created by residents for residents, in the centre of our heritage village.

'Posh' Afternoon Teas are available for just 5.00 at Garden D. Skelton History Group will be on hand to give information if required. Please note - last entry to Castle Garden 3.00pm, all others 3.30pm.
