There will be the chance to take a relaxing stroll through the idyllic and beautiful surroundings of a rarely-seen garden when it is opened to visitors this bank holiday weekend.

Two open days are due to be held at The Granary on Sunday, August 30 and Monday, August 31 from 11am to 4.30pm, with all proceeds being donated to charity.

The ‘secret’ garden is 
situated on the edge of Fenny Compton with land running adjacent to Oxford Canal.

It is owned by Mark and 
Lucy Davies and promises some spectacular views of the Dassett Hills.

The event is taking place as part of the National Garden Scheme which sees a wide variety of intriguing gardens opened across the country for a limited time at different points through the year.

Last year the scheme raised £2.5million for its chosen 
charities, including Marie 
Curie Cancer Care and 
Macmillan Cancer Support.

Visitors to The Granary will be able to wander through the three acre canalside paddock 
and discover something out of the ordinary – a copse 
containing 106 native British trees and the fruit orchard.

Light lunches will also be available from the Granary Summerhouse, with culinary delights prepared using fresh produce from the kitchen plot.

An array of homebaked cakes will also be on offer, with homemade meringues made by garden owner Lucy Davies.

The Granary can be found on Wharf Road near Fenny Compton.

A selection of plants, fruits, vegetables and Granary 
conserves will be available to buy on the day.

There is an entry fee of £4 for adults and children will be admitted free, with all proceeds going to charity.

Dogs on leads are also 
welcome.
