Easter Monday – Open Garden teas & plants

The Old Rectory (next to the church) is opening their garden in aid of Caldecote Church this Easter Bank Holiday Monday (April 2nd 2018). Entry is free and children more than welcome.

If you were thinking that it’s miserable outside and not the day for an open garden, think again! Visitors to the Old Rectory garden today can expect a generous Easter tea with homemade cake by wood-burning fires. Make the most of your Bank Holiday in comfort!

As well as the afternoon teas, there will be a sale of wildlife-friendly plants, and tours of the 2.3-acre garden by local garden designer and plantsman, Daniel Lee.

The garden is next to the church on Main Street, Caldecote (CB23 7NU for those travelling by sat nav).

All funds raised will help to support Caldecote Church, to provide a sustainable venue for worship, weddings and christenings for the whole community.

Do come, and bring friends and family!

More about the Old Rectory Garden

The beautifully designed garden, developed by the owners, Catherine Hubbard and John Barker, has had the benefit of Daniel Lee’s stewardship in recent years. Respect for the natural features and wildlife allow for a relaxed garden full of hidden delights.

The centrepiece of the garden is the wildflower meadow, which is a magnet for bees. Within the meadow you can sit and relax under a majestic multi-stemmed ash tree.

But it is woodland that predominates with a rich variety of trees, mature topiary and spring bulbs. From the terrace, you can look out over the croquet lawn, espalier fruit trees, and scented borders.
