The villages of Town and Kirk Yetholm are situated at the north end of the Pennine Way and lie close to the Bowmont Water in the dramatic setting of the foothills of the Cheviots. A variety of gardens with their own unique features and reflecting distinctive horticultural interests will be open. The Yew Tree Allotments running along the High Street will open again, providing an ever popular feature with their unique water collection and distribution system. The short walking distance between the majority of the gardens provides magnificent views of the surrounding landscape to include Staerough and The Curr which straddle both the Bowmont and Halterburn Valleys where evidence of ancient settlements remains.
This is a fundraising event for the open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
