Welcome to Kirky Cottage Red Cross Open Garden Day

  • Address: Kirky Cottage, 12 Mindrum Farm Cottages, Mindrum, Northumberland, TD12 4QN
  • Directions:
    Six miles south-west of Coldstream. Nine miles north-west of Wooler on B6352. Four miles north of Yetholme. Five miles from Cornhill on Tweed.
  • By kind permission of: Mrs Ginny Fairfax
  • For all enquiries, please get in touch with Margaret Musgrave by email at MMusgrave@redcross.org.uk or by phone on 0191 2334173

After 5 years, Kirky Cottage garden is mature and already bursting at the seams with old roses, violas and precious, much loved plants all brought by Ginny Fairfax from her old garden at Mindrum 500 yards away. An exciting and interesting cottage style garden in a superb setting.
