Catcott Open Gardens

 approx 20 gardens open Catcott, Somerset
Sunday 23rd June 2019
2.00pm to 6.00pm

With hundreds of gardens across the country opening up for visitors this summer, one sleepy Somerset village has something a little different to offer.

On June 23rd, the rumble of twenty-two vintage limousines will sound in unison as they chauffeur visitors around Catcott's annual Open Gardens day.

For 25 years, the residents of this picturesque Polden Hills village have competed for the coveted Catcott Best Garden award. The pristine private collection of vehicles (with the oldest being a stunning 1915 Reo seven seat convertible) are brought out together just once a year by local car-enthusiast, Gerry Wheeler. The vehicles operate a 'hop on/hop off' service between the competing gardens, running a circuit around the village.

The gardens in the village are something special too. Catcott has a proud horticultural tradition, having won the national Britain in Bloom award for best small village twice and scooping the West of England regional award several years in a row.

The event attracts visitors from far and wide and provides a unique experience for garden and car-lovers alike.

All money raised is donated to local good causes.
