On Sunday (August 26) the luxury home on Middle Drove opened up their garden gates as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS).

This isn’t the first time the house has opened up for charity, last year they attracted over 200 visitors and raised more than £1,400 for their chosen charities.

On the day, BBC Radio Norfolk’s Anna Perrott stopped by as part of the station’s popular ‘Treasure Quest’ programme.

Anna interviewed the home owners before dashing off to Tilney-cum-Islington to find her third clue in the show.

A spokesman said: “Meanwhile, despite the disappointing weather, enthusiastic garden lovers enjoyed the autumn display in this beautiful fenland garden.”

Overall in 2018, owners Teresa Lovick and Andrew Stephens OBE raised over £2,500 for Marie Curie, Macmillan Cancer Support, Hospice UK and other nursing and caring charities in the UK.

Teresa and Andrew are now planning changes and work on the garden before opening again in spring 2019.
