Grab a chance to explore Peckover’s past and future for free as part of a popular annual heritage open day event.
Diane Smith, marketing manager at Peckover House, said: “Have you ever wondered what lies beyond the classically Georgian frontage of the National Trust’s Peckover House?
“Have you ever been curious to know about the garden, hidden from view of the road?
“On Heritage Open Day we will be opening the doors and gates to offer free access to visitors.
“There’s plenty to see - from the wonderfully scented garden, to exhibitions and displays in the elegant rooms of the house, all of which give a glimpse into the past.
