Beth Chatto Gardens & Lavenham – Thursday 24th June – Coach trip from Norwich

Thursday 24th June 2021

The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland of brambles, parched gravel and boggy ditches it has been transformed using plants adapted by nature to thrive in different conditions, and an inspirational, informal garden has developed. The accompanying plant nursery stocks over 2000 plants, all sold by growing conditions. While the light and airy tearoom allow visitors to relax and take in their surroundings over a homemade cake.

On the outward journey we will have some time in picturesque Lavenham before arriving at Beth Chatto around lunchtime.

Rutland Water Cream Tea Cruise & Barnsdale Gardens (Oakham) – Friday 16th July 2021 – Coach trip from Norwich

Come with us to Rutland Water as we enjoy a morning cream tea aboard the Rutland Belle and a 45 minute cruise on Rutland Water. This 45-minute, morning cruise is served with a large freshly baked fruit scone with strawberry jam, luxury clotted cream, tea & coffee.

Rutland Belle plies from Whitwell on the North Shore and calls in at Normanton on the South Shore. Visitors can enjoy the scenery from the water, amidst the sailors, anglers and waterbirds, whilst listening to commentary highlighting points of interest.

Rutland Water is a large, horseshoe-shaped reservoir set within three thousand acres of beautiful countryside in the East Midlands region of England. Anglian Water owns and administers the reservoir, and around its twenty-five mile perimeter there are four leisure areas. Three are on the north shore at Barnsdale, Whitwell and Sykes Lane.

 

 

We then travel a short distance to spend the afternoon at Barnsdale Gardens, formerly the gardens of BBC Gardener’s World presenter Geoff Hamilton.  Geoff joined the team in 1979 and filming was done at the original Barnsdale.  Geoff found that there was little room to experiment and so he began to look for a suitable alternative. In 1983, he found it. Just one mile away, a Victorian farmhouse with over 5 acres of land – ‘Barnsdale’ was born!

 

                           

Two years later Gardeners’ World was well established in its new home with Geoff’s down to earth style making him a hit with the viewers. It was here that he continued to present the show, developing the individual garden designs, experimenting with plants, themes and ideas to inspire the nation to get outside and have a go. And it was here that he earned the reputation of being the ‘People’s Gardener’ – and this spirit lives on today at Barnsdale Gardens.  Cafe available for lunch and afternoon refreshments.

Route via Taverham, Thickthorn, Wymondham & Attleborough.
