Garden event set for Burgh Le Marsh home

The garden at Willow Cottage, Burgh-le-Marsh, home of Bob and Karen Ward opens for the National Gardens Scheme on Friday, May 17, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19.

A Tom Sawyer type adventure awaits with woodland walks, ponds, bridges, nooks and crannies from 2pm-5pm each day.

“Described as a wildlife haven with many tranquil spots to alight and relax, a photographers heaven,” said a spokesperson.

“There is a Victorian greenhouse, vegetable patch, and chickens. Be sure to take tea on the terrace,” they added.

There will be delicious home-made cakes from Aunt Polly’s kitchen.

Admission costs £3 with children free.

Home-made teas, produce and plants will also be for sale and dogs on a short lead are welcome.

Visitors also welcome by appointment by calling 01754 811450 or emailing

The National Gardens Scheme raises over £2.6 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes. It is the single largest benefactor to Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
