The first ever Saddington Open Gardens event. Saddington is a small tranquil village set in outstanding countryside situated off A6 near Kibworth Beauchamp and Fleckney.
Approximately 14 gardens (never seen before) will be open for viewing - some small, some large - each with their own unique character and many with stunning views over the valleys and reservoir.
Relax and admire the peaceful surroundings whilst you enjoy a selection of refreshments (vegans are catered for) available at various locations within this picturesque, conservation village. The pub will also be open and serving food. There will be a variety of other fundraising events held over the 2 days including an art sale, stalls, plant sales, raffle and activities to keep children entertained.
