A once-in-a-year chance to visit the many dazzling gardens in this beautiful conservation village, with its glorious panoramic views. We have a range of gardens open for you to explore, from small cottage gardens to the extensive grounds of Chedington Court, with lots of sizes, styles and personalities in-between. There will be at least 10 gardens open this year. As an added bonus, some of our home-grown artists and makers are opening the doors of their studios and workshops featuring a wide variety of arts and crafts.
Join us for refreshments or lunch, featuring our excellent home-made cakes, in the Village Hall from 11 o’clock. Or later in the day, sample a delicious cream tea in Chedington Court Great Hall, there will also be an activity Treasure Trail for children visiting the gardens.
This year the proceeds will be shared between Weldmar Hospice and the Village Hall fund.
There will be plant stalls and some village produce for sale.

Along A356 between Crewkerne and Maiden Newton, turn off at Winyards Gap pub and drive 1km into the village or turn off A3066 at Mosterton and go up Chedington Lane turning left at the very top of the hill.
Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
Some of Chedington Court is wheelchair friendly. Unfortunately, as Chedington is on a hillside many of the smaller gardens have no wheelchair access.
