July Open Gardens

The opportunities to visit our lovely gardens are rare, as they have been created especially as a peaceful haven for the residents who live in the almshouse here.  We are therefore delighted to announce that, due to very popular demand, we are opening them for a monthly series of Open Garden evenings.  Join us for a relaxed evening when you will be free to walk amongst the gardens on these non-guided events, with the opportunity to enjoy an informal BBQ and bar.  Discover this beautifully planted oasis  on our stunning seven acre site.
