Open Garden.

Teas are widely available for all three days in the town.
On Sunday, teas are also available at The Old Vicarage.

The Old Vicarage extends to just over one and a half acres, the gardens include lawned areas surrounded by perennial beds and mature shrubs, an ornamental pond, orchard and romantic ruin, fragments of the lost thirteenth century church. Snow drops abound throughout the garden in February.

The National Garden Scheme opens beautiful private gardens for the public to enjoy for charity.  With the help of the garden owners, volunteers and visitors the scheme has donated £58 million to nursing and healthcare charities nationally. A percentage of the artwork sold at The Old Vicarage during your visit will go to the charities supported by the scheme.
