Wadhurst Open Gardens

We are very sad and sorry to announce that we have to postpone this event for June 2021 until the government declare we are free to hold public gatherings. Please see "Notices" for general announcements.

This is our annual fundraising event, reaching out to the whole community, and providing a very enjoyable event involving the whole village. From small beginnings, the event has grown and is now the major fundraiser for the Cottage, attracting visitors from near and far.

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon, generally held in June, than to wander around lovely gardens, large and small, enjoy a cream tea and buy a plant to remind you of the day.


Some of the many comments from our Wadhurst garden visitors 2019

"What a wonderful day, the weather was perfect and the gardens gave me some good ideas for my own garden. Looking forward to next year!"

"I had a thoroughly relaxing, interesting and sociable afternoon visiting a wide range of gardens of different styles in both a village setting and in the surrounding countryside."

"As a newcomer to Wadhurst I have loved the opportunity to visit  local gardens – either the  town gardens tucked away behind the front gate which reveal such imagination and hard work  or the larger country ones set in a backdrop of glorious open views.  Both have been an inspiration and feast of flowers and I am grateful for the opportunity the Open Gardens Day gives me to explore my new surroundings.  Thank you to all the owners and organizers."
