Gardens are full of spring colour

There will certainly be no shortage of spring flowers this year with which to celebrate Mother’s Day, and at the National Trust’s Peckover House in Wisbech the gardens are full of spring colour and glory, to make this special day even more memorable.

“Mothering Sunday afternoon tea at Peckover has become something of a tradition,” said Catering Manager Laura Andrews. “A walk in the spring garden, exploring the elegant Georgian townhouse, freshly opened for a new season, with a special afternoon tea in the Reed Barn, have all become part of that tradition.”

And this year there’s no doubt that, for the flowers at least, spring has come early, allowing the Peckover gardens to look their new season best.

The special Mothering Sunday Afternoon Tea, for which booking is essential, will be served between 2pm and 4.30pm in the Reed Barn on Sunday, March 6. The gardens will open from 11am, the house from midday. Afternoon tea will be offered at £11.95 (children £4.95), plus normal admission for non members.
