On Sunday 25th March, from 1.30pm – 5pm, The Deane House, Sparsholt, will open its large gardens to the public for the National Garden Scheme to raise funds for Friends of the Family, a local charity supporting children and families across the Winchester district.

Located in Woodman Lane, The Grade II listed country house, dates back to 1786. Visitors will have the opportunity to wander through the stunning grounds to admire both traditional and contemporary gardens including a croquet lawn, modern water features, orchard, fruit and vegetable garden, and meadows. Visitors will also be able to pick daffodils and enjoy tea in the recently reconfigured Georgian house with donations going to Friends of the Family.

Friends of the Family trustee Chrissie Morse, who designed the garden in Sparsholt, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy the spring bulbs popping up all over the wonderful 3-acre garden. We hope adults and children will enjoy picking some daffodils to raise money for Friends of the Family, a worthwhile charity which helps families facing very difficult and challenging circumstances.”

The Deane House is located in Woodman Lane, Sparsholt, SO21 2LR. Entry is £6 per adult, children free. Parking and teas are available but unfortunately no dogs can be allowed.
