Drinkstone Open Gardens 2021

Now in it its fifth and best year!

Saturday 19th June 2021, 12.00pm to 5.00pm

Drinkstone Village Hall, Gedding Road, Drinkstone, Suffolk, IP30 9SZ

Do not fear; this event will be going ahead. Any delay in the roadmap will not affect us; we were already geared up to be in step 3 and have all the necessary precautions in place.

Map and directions – here

Garden descriptions – will follow shortly.

We are delighted after the uncertainty of the last 12 months to be opening around 15 gardens in our rural village in the heart of beautiful Suffolk, the county of rolling landscapes and big skies.

Drinkstone is very rural and our gardens reflect that, many with stunning views across open rolling countryside.

You will see a varied selection of gardens –  thatched cottage gardens overflowing with roses, gardens of landscaped parkland, modern gardens with a huge variety of planting, wildlife gardens, bijou gardens showing off just how much variety you can get in if you try -and a triumph of a brand new garden built from scratch this year.

We are pleased to have an NGS garden opening for us again, plus four gardens opening for the first time.

At the Village Hall, there will  plant sales and refreshments.

Entry by programme: £5.00 per adult, accompanied children under 16 free, from 12 noon onwards in the Village Hall car park. 

Your programme highlights all the gardens with a map of where they are, where you can park and any accessibility restrictions.

Drinkstone is quite spread out and use of car to get around is advisable. You can easily walk from the Village Hall to about half of the gardens that are open, but think about using your car for the others.

Use the Village Hall car park for programmes, refreshments and plant sales. Parking areas for the other gardens are shown in the programme.

At the Village Hall. These will be available to takeaway due to the current Covid guidelines.

Outside the Village Hall.

All proceeds from this event go to All Saints’ Church.
