Colsterworth Open Gardens

Please note
This event ran in 2018 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

 approx 8 gardens opened Colsterworth, near Grantham, Lincolnshire
Saturday 7th July 2018
10.00am to 4.30pm

There will be some lovely gardens open in the village of Colsterworth for you to explore. There will be a refreshments marquee where you can relax with tea, coffee or a soft drink, and perhaps a little home-made cake, or other tasty fare.

You might choose to enter our garden quiz, and this weekend is also our Scarecrow Festival, so keep a lookout for scarecrows in front gardens around the village.

Colsterworth village is well worth exploring. It has an ancient church, St John the Baptist, where Sir Isaac Newton was baptised and inside is a sundial that he carved when he was a child. If you enjoy a walk, there is a footpath from the church which passes alongside the River Witham and leads to Woolsthorpe. It is very pretty.

On Sunday it is the turn of nearby Woolsthorpe (you can buy a combined weekend ticket). No dogs in the gardens please, except assistance dogs.

All proceeds go towards the upkeep of St John the Baptist Church.

Plant sales
Lots of plants for sale, in at least two gardens.

3.00 for the day or 5.00 to include our neighbouring village of Woolsthorpe which opens on Sunday. Accompanied under 16s free.

How to get event passports
Buy passports from the Refreshment Marquee on Colster Way.

Colsterworth is very close to the A1. As you run off the A1 into the village you will be on the Bourne Road. Colster Way is a turning off to the right. Follow Colster Way round, past the play area on the left hand side. The Refreshment Marquee is on the left a few hundred yards further on. From Melton Mowbray the turn onto Colster Way (off Bourne Road) is on the left.
