Green-fingered Otterton residents will be opening their gardens to the public on Sunday, June 26 to raise funds for St Michael’s Church.
There will be the chance to explore nine private gardens, including Barton House which overlooks the valley with its grounds sweeping down to the banks of the River Otter; Uphayes, with its extensive views over the village; and The Old Station, which still has the track of the Otterton and East Budleigh Light Railway in its grounds.
The £5 price of admission to all nine gardens also includes a ride on a miniature steam train along the old railway track.
The gardens will be open from 11am until 5pm, and refreshments will be available in the village hall until 4.30pm.
Tickets will be available on the day from the village green or at the event’s free car park on Bell Street – cash only.
