January sees the garden at Peckover House in Wisbech at its most peaceful, a time when the first signs of the coming spring can be glimpsed.
A walk in this atmospheric and inspiring place, enjoying the early shrubs and bulbs, can be made complete with warming drinks available in the Reed Barn tea room.
Added to all that, as with last year, there is the chance to take a look at the conservation work that is going on in the house.
“There is always plenty going on at Peckover during the winter,” said house steward Carole French, “and we’d like to give visitors an opportunity to see the sort of conservation work we do.
“I am very pleased to be continuing the talks in the house this year.”
The garden, tea room and shop will be open at weekends only from this Saturday until 22 February, from 12 noon to last admission at 3.30pm.
There will be two talks in the house during the afternoon, at 1.30 and 3pm. Booking for these is strongly advisable, as numbers are limited.
Admission is free for National Trust members, with the normal garden entrance fee applicable otherwise.
To book a place on a talk or for further information, please phone Peckover House on 01945 583463.
