Old Farm highlights include a beautiful formal terrace with pond and rockery, a magnificent arboretum and a lawn with extensive herbaceous borders.  Look out for the many fine specimen trees throughout, in particular the handkerchief tree and the tulip tree.  Climbing roses adorn the granite walls and there are about 20 different varieties of camellia.  The avenue of magnolia is a further highlight. Open by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Clive Chaplin.

𝗗𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀, 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗶𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆. Travel up Trinity Hill for about 1.7 miles or 2.7 Km until you reach Rue de La Garenne on the left.  Directions are placed in major road junctions using our branded yellow signs and will direct you all the way to the Open Garden and parking area.  Parking is in Rue de la Garenne. There isn’t a separate disable access but the parking field is very close to the entrance which is at the back entrance.  The cream teas area is accessible for wheelchair users with only a short distance over grass needing to be covered.

We look forward to seeing you there!  https://bit.ly/3lMXwoV

JAYF Open Gardens are a fantastic family outing and a joy for garden lovers everywhere. Thank you to everyone who visited or supported our Open Gardens in 2022, we had a very successful season and it wouldn’t have been possible without all our wonderful volunteers and visitors. Guests tried their luck at tombolas and treated themselves to delicious cream tea, served with genuine Jersey clotted cream, milk and butter kindly donated by Fungi Delecti and Jersey Dairy. Thanks also to Neil and Alli Singleton of Birding Tours who ensured guests got the most out of their visit with their wonderful guided Walk and Talks. JAYF are enormously grateful to Aztec Group for its continued support of the Open Garden scheme.
