THE gardens at Tudor Croft on Stokesley Road, Guisborough were open again last weekend.

Blessed by decent weather, it was an extraordinarily busy weekend with many hundreds of visitors from as far afield as the Lake District, Scotland, Newcastle, Leeds, Hull, and of course locally.

Tudor Croft owner, Mike Heagney said: “Once again, many first-time visitors from Teesside said that they were shocked that such a beautiful garden existed on their doorstep and that they had never been before.”

Proceeds from the gardens open days will go towards the National Garden Scheme, which opens privately owned gardens in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Channel Isles on selected dates for charity.

Tudor Croft will be open for the final time this year on Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3, from 11am until 4pm. Parking is free.
