Sunday 28th & Monday 29th May 2017
This Bank Holiday weekend marks the 90th anniversary of the National Garden Scheme, which has, since its opening in 1927, raised over £50million, which it has donated mainly to nursing charities. Last year alone they donated £2.7million, including £500,000 to each of Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and Hospice UK.
After last year's highly successful Open Garden fundraising in Newtown Linford, several gardens on Main Street - , 'Woodlands', 'Bank Cottage' & 'Appletree Cottage' will open again on this special anniversary weekend and they may also be joined by one or two more gardens on Main Street. They will definitely be joined by 'Mountain Ash' on Ulverscroft Lane. More »
These gardens provide an interesting variety of sizes and styles. Two of the gardens have banks of the River Lin from where you can see brown trout and the occasional kingfisher. 'Appletree Cottage' has a charming enclosed garden, surrounding a C17 thatched cottage, with interesting paths leading to lawns, borders, sun terrace and a small lily pond. 'Bank Cottage' has a typical cottage garden, set on different levels that lead down to the river, providing year round colour but is prettiest in spring. The River Lin flows through the one acre garden at 'Woodlands', where many varied shrubs and spring flowers grow round the mature trees. You can enjoy tea & cake at 'Mountain Ash', a two acre garden with stunning views across the Charnwood countryside. Near the house are patios, lawns, water features, flower and shrub beds, soft fruit cage, greenhouses and vegetable plots. Lawns then slope down to a gravel garden, a large wildlife pond and three areas of woodland, with pleasant walks through many species of trees. There are several places to sit and relax around the garden. In addition to teas, there will also be plant sales and other stalls at 'Mountain Ash'. Dogs on leads are also welcomed here with well-behaved owners.
There is a combined entry fee of £5, covering all the gardens. Children free.
Please come with family and friends and enjoy our gardens in historic Newtown Linford in the beautiful Charnwood countryside on this special 90th anniversary weekend and help support this very worthwhile charity. » Less
