The luxury house on Middle Drove is opening up as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS) on Sunday, August 26.

A spokesman said: “Bank House is an exuberant and established two acre garden, with a range of growing conditions from damp shade to dry gravel.

“It is set in the heart of the Fens and is the most westerly NGS garden to be open in Norfolk, and the only NGS garden in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire to be open on August 26.

“The garden comprises: ornamental grass garden, bog garden, new pond, formal lawn, mixed borders, veg and fruit areas, patios, terraces and a variety of picturesque secret spaces.

“It has been a challenging summer for keen gardeners however the recent rain has provided a welcome boost to growing conditions.”

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