Crawley Village Hall is the venue for tea and cakes to accompany the ever popular NGS Garden Open Days held at various gardens in the village.
A different combination of gardens opens each month providing seasonal interest with varied character, and with traditional and contemporary approaches to landscape and planting. Most of the gardens have beautiful country views and there are other excellent gardens to be seen from the road. The spring gardens are Paige Cottage, Gable Cottage and the 3-acre traditional English country garden at Little Court with carpets of spring bulbs. In summer, other gardens open. At Bay Tree House there are pleached limes, a rill and contemporary borders; while at Tanglefoot there are colour-themed borders, herb wheel, exceptional kitchen garden and a traditional Victorian boundary wall supporting trained fruit incl apricots. Also in the summer, Little Court has a mass of colourful herbaceous planting while Paige Cottage is a typical mixed cottage garden.
Details of days when teas are served are shown in the posts on the home page, and further details of the gardens and opening times can be found at the ngs website:
