This is an exciting opportunity to see this special National Garden Scheme garden, in the Surrey Hills, nestled at the foot of Chinthurst Hill. This beautiful one acre cottage garden on the outskirts of Wonersh has been featured in ‘Period Homes’ and ‘Surrey Life’ magazine. This garden is only open by appointment.

The Garden has been reconfigured to maintain social distancing rules and will be managed via a one way route around the garden.

The National Garden Scheme is a charity that raises funds by privately owned houses opening their gardens in England and Wales to raise funds for worthwhile causes. It was founded in 1927 in England with the aim of “opening gardens of quality, character and interest to the public for charity”. The scheme has raised over £50 million since it began, and over half a million garden visits occur each year. When the scheme began 609 private gardens were opened and £8,191 was raised. See www. ngs.org.uk for more details. The COVID -19 crisis has affected this important charities work, as this pandemic has for so many. This event is in aid of the NGS charity.

The costs of the event is £6.50 for members and £7.50 for non-members.
