‘Grow your way to five a day’! This seems to be the motto for more and more families in Drinkstone.

We have 2 allotment sizes: Gedding Road with 14 plots of various sizes, and Rattlesden Road with 7 plots. Water is piped in to both sites.

The price per plot is £15 a year for a single plot and £24 per plot for a double plot including the cost of water. So one crop of beans will more than cover your rent!

There is only one qualification for becoming an allotment holder – you just have to live in Drinkstone!  

If you are interested in any of our allotment sites, please email our Clerk, stating your name, address and telephone number and which site you are interested in. 

Your can check out the rules and regulations for allotment holders Rules and regulations.

The allotments are managed by the Allotments Charity. There are three trustees who oversee the running of the sites. If you are an existing allotment holder and have any questions or concerns about the sites, please contact the trustees in the first instance:
