There is a rare chance to explore a four acre ‘secret garden’ in Blakeney on Sunday 16th July – all in aid of Norfolk’s sight loss charity.

For one day only the hidden gem at The Merchants House on the village’s High Street will be open for visitors, who will be able to walk through woodlands, an orchard and a vegetable garden, across a beautiful lawn, and see a unique hidden Ice House.

All proceeds from the day will go to the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind, whose volunteers will be serving tea and homemade cakes, as well as crafts made by blind members.

NNAB fundraiser Donna Minto said, “We are extremely grateful to Mr and Mrs Marris who live at The Merchants House for opening up their garden for us. 

“This is an extremely rare chance to discover one of north Norfolk’s hidden gems, a lovely four acre garden hidden out of view of the road.  It really is a secret garden.”

The Merchants House, at 86 High Street, Blakeney, is open on Sunday 16th July from 12pm to 5pm.  Entry costs £5 for adults, and is free for children under 12.  Parking is available on Blakeney Quay, or in the village hall car park opposite Little Lane.
