Sample the historic and beautiful gardens at the Sharpham Trust Spring Garden Open Day
The Sharpham Trust is throwing open its doors (and gates) for its annual Spring Garden Open Day on Saturday April 25.
Visitors will be able to see bulbs and flowers in bloom and blossoming trees in the historic and beautiful gardens of this estate, set on the banks of the River Dart.
And they’ll be shuttled to the free Open Day at Sharpham for nothing, thanks to a partnership with Totnes’ community transport Bob The Bus.
Sharpham House is a Georgian Palladian villa set in a landscape laid out by the famed designer Capability Brown.
There is limited parking available on the day, and drivers will be charged £4 to park.
The trust is encouraging visitors to car-share or leave their cars behind and use Bob The Bus – the community bus in Totnes. The bus is free to use for Sharpham Spring Garden Open Day visitors.
The bus will shuttle visitors between its stop at the Royal Seven Stars in the centre of Totnes and Sharpham Estate, beginning at 10.15am, with the final bus leaving Sharpham at 4.15pm. Check out the full timetable.
There will be a café open for teas, coffees, cakes and biscuits, ensuring visitors are fully refreshed after their explorations.
Dogs aren’t allowed on the Spring Garden Open Day, apart from guide dogs.
The Trust is looking for volunteers to help on this day (and at Sharpham Trust generally) so if you would like to get involved, please contact Volunteers Co-ordinator Katie Davy on firstname.lastname@example.org
