NATIONAL GARDEN SCHEME

 

The gardens at Woodlands Farm Wales have opened for many years under the National Garden Scheme. Each year there are new features to enjoy and we have found visitors return year after to year to experience the evolving gardens and to eat the delicious teas served in the Pavilion. A new addition, we will be offering wine one evening to make the gardens even more special…

In 2018 the gardens will be open for an entire week after Easter from Monday 9, April to Sunday 15 April inclusive and then again in July (Saturday, 28 July and Sunday, 29 July). This should ensure that there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the gardens in the sunshine. The calendar of events is set out below. We’d be delighted to see you at one or more of the events. We are confident that you will not be disappointed. All proceeds from the gate (£5 per adult, except on Friday evening when the gate is £6 – but it includes a free glass of wine) go to the NGS charities and all other revenue helps support local causes. Check out our entry in the Yellow Book at National Garden Scheme.
