About Secret Gardens of Winster

Winster is a picturesque and historic Derbyshire village, 5 miles from Matlock and Bakewell. (See Map)

On one weekend each year, a large number of residents open their gardens to their neighbours and to visitors from further afield. In 2023, we had 24 gardens open each day.

Visitors follow a garden trail around the streets and alleys of the village, exploring a wide variety of gardens. There is a free Gnome Hunt for children.

We offer a wide range of refreshments in several gardens – from cream teas to home-made desserts. Soft and alcoholic drinks will be available in a number of locations.

There will be plants from Winster-based Peak Cottage Plants, and quality local crafts for sale, and there will be live Jazz in one of the gardens each day.

We are expecting that Winster Morris Dancers will perform at 5pm one one afternoon and there will be a 45-minute concert by the Wyns Tor Singers at 4.30pm on the other afternoon.

The event is run in aid of the Burton Institute, Winster’s award-winning village hall, and other Winster organisations.
