A warm welcome awaits you at the varied gardens of our parish. Large and small, simple and elaborate, immaculate and a little more 'natural', all very different and all for you to enjoy.

Our gardeners are usually available to welcome you to their gardens and will try to answer any questions that you may have.

Comfy shoes are probably advisable but afternoon teas will be available to take a rest and enjoy your surroundings. We even have a string quartet to entertain you in one garden on the Sunday. We look forward to seeing you.

This year's proceeds are going to the local Air Ambulance and our villages' Good Neighbour Scheme.

Cost:  4.00 per adult which covers both days. Accompanied children and wheelchair users free.
