Open Gardens Norfolk

I had planned not to re-visit any subject matter covered in the 2014 challenge, but gardening is a big favourite for so many Barn & Beach guests; people love to visit the wealth of gardens on our doorstep.

We have the vicarage at East Ruston two miles away a real classic that people flock to from far and wide. The Owners also feature on BBC radio 4 gardening programmes.

We also have the National Trust houses of Blickling and Febrigg Halls, the walled garden at Felbrigg Hall being a particular Barn & Beach favourite, great to visit four times a year; Spring, summer, autumn & winter the seasonal changes are a fabulous to note, please do try this with any favourite of your own?

This year Open Gardens have two particular villages that will make for easy destinations for our guest;

Bacton on our doorstep being an obvious choice, keeps the carbon footprint low too; I can walk or cycle there!

Honing more of a cycle than walk approximately five miles from the coast here at Ridlington….

and as a special treat I will drive to the Open Gardens at Winterton-on-Sea sounds like it is going to be beautiful on the 19th July 2015 here is the link

If you are not visiting Norfolk this year do visit the Open gardens website to find an event near you it is a lovely way to spend the day, lots of friendly chat, shared knowledge and a Cream Tea too, perhaps?

Visit Norfolk.

  1. I don’t know gardens around me as well as I have most places where I’ve lived in the past. It takes me long enough to keep on top of my own as the trees and brambles keep growing.. I love some of the ones you mention and will have to venture out to the others.
