Sorry, but Okeford Fitzpaine Open Gardens isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 15 gardens opened Okeford Fitzpaine, near Blandford Forum, Dorset
Saturday 1st July 2023

A good range of gardens will be open, some of which have not been opened before. They feature gardens of varying sizes and features, and the village allotments will also be on show as well as other gardens visible from the road.

In St. Andrew's Church there will be a display of wedding dresses worn by local brides, also imaginative and creative flower arrangements and an interesting display of Church kneelers made by parishioners.

Our village pub, The Royal Oak, will be open from 3.00pm. The village shop and its café are open all day. We have a children's playground in Lower Street and we have a small village museum next to the shop.

The village hall will be open all day for coffee and cakes, Ploughman's lunches, and cream teas.

Other than for assistance dogs, please do not take a dog onto a property without asking first.
