Winsham Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail

This event is resting for 2024
Sorry, but Winsham Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 15 gardens opened Winsham, between Chard and Beaminster, Somerset
Saturday 24th June 2023
10.30am to 5.30pm

Situated at the southern most tip of Somerset, a few hundred yards from the Dorset border and yet only a couple of miles from the border with Devon, Winsham nestles in the Axe valley. Saxon in origin, it has retained its name for over 1000 years and is mentioned in the Domesday book.

Opened in 2021 for the first time in 16 years we again have a varied, and hopefully interesting, selection for you to amble around this year. Some you'll have seen in 2021 but almost half are opening their gardens for the first time.

There will be a scarecrow trail, and this year the church tower will also be open so you can get a birds-eye view of the village. Several of the villagers are also holding yard sales on the same day so there'll be plenty to keep you occupied.

There will be refreshments available in some gardens.

Sorry, no dogs other than assistance dogs allowed in the gardens.
