Take a walk around this lovely village and enjoy the fabulous gardens of six of its houses. These wonderful private gardens will be open in the afternoon for you to enjoy an array of sites, sounds and scents. You'll also be able to enjoy refreshments at the village pub 'The Duck on the Pond', all to help support Katharine House.

The gardens include:

1. An organic garden with herbaceous borders offering all year colour, a formal 'box hedge' parterre with tulips and dahlias.  A kitchen garden managed with rotation and companion planting. The orchard with aged fruit trees around the 'wildlife pond' to view from paths carved out amongst the now past daffodils.  Please keep dogs on the lead as hens roam freely.

2. The garden at College Farm is modest from the flower viewpoint, but the setting with the house and thatched barn makes up for that.  The visit includes the meadow and the stream that bounds it.  

3. A five year old cottage garden, designed, built and planted by the owners.  they have planted an eclectic range of plants together with a small fruit and vegetable area.  They have also created a walled patio area at the back of the cottage.

Details of more gardens to follow shortly...
