Events Description

Welcome to Lilburn Tower HospiceCare Open Garden Day

Come and see an English garden in all its glory courtesy of The Davidson Family.

Lilburn stands above the River Till and is a mixture of historical garden features and innovative modern design. Gloriously colourful, the staging is packed with tender plants and their scent fills the air. Wander along terraces of beautiful ‘Hidcote’ lavender and tumbling white rambling roses. Discover the Victorian Conservatory, a large glasshouse with vines and the walled produce garden, still in use for growing fruit and vegetables. Take a stroll along the picturesque woodland walk to take a look at the lovely Pond Garden. There are 30 acres of woodland to wander in, perfect for a walk with your dog, leading past the ruins of a defensive Pele Tower and a C15th church.
