Smallholding near Wisbech stages charity open days
John and Marilyn Clarke will be opening up their 13-acre smallholding for the National Garden Scheme (NGS) charity later this month.
Kenilworth, on West Drove North, Walton Highway, near Wisbech, will be open (11am to 5pm) on Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30.
There is a large garden, two ponds and various 'garden rooms', including an Oriental-style garden and glasshouses with fig and peach trees.
There are also herb gardens, flowers beds, goats with kids and Kerry sheep with lambs in the paddocks.
There is also a walking trail, which winds through a Bramley apple orchard, some of whose trees are 100 or more years old, and a copse.
An exhibition will chart the ownership of the house, the occupation of the surrounding area since the Iron Age and an ongoing archaeological dig on one of its fields.
There will be a sheep shearing demonstration on the Monday.
