For all those who love gardening and, more importantly, visiting beautiful gardens, there is a wonderful event coming up soon in Cranbrook. The annual popular Cranbrook Garden Safari takes place this year on Sunday 12th June between 10.30am-5pm. Fifteen gardens all around this charming market town will be opening for the public to see as well as the Allotments and Forge Orchard. Tickets cost £5 and are available to buy from Pages newsagent or Phillips Man’s shop on the high street before the event, or on the day from any of the gardens. The Open gardens are marked with balloons and yellow signs so will be easy to find. The Windmill, museum and St Dunstan’s church will also be open which means there will be lots to see and do on the day whilst walking around the town itself. Cranbrook’s streets are lined with pretty weavers cottages and there are many interesting shops and cafes too. Why not take a look at one of our lovely holiday cottages and book a short break in the area so that you can pay Cranbrook and the Garden Safari a visit? As 2016 is the Year of the English Garden, you may of course need longer for your visit to Kent - the Garden of England - which boasts some 180 plus gardens and was recently voted ‘Garden Tourism Destination of the Year’ by international Garden Tourism Network. Great Dixter, Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens, Riverhill Himalayan Gardens, Pashley Manor and Hole Park to name but a few are among the more famous gardens in the region to visit.
