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.
