Lukesland, a well-known garden on the southern edge of Dartmoor, is having a special opening on the VE Bank Holiday to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the British Red Cross.
The Howell family, who have owned Lukesland since the 1930’s, have had a long association with the Red Cross. During WW2 the Billiard Room, now the tea room, was a collection point for Red Cross parcels and the current owners organise days out for groups of refugees and asylum seekers from Plymouth through the BRC Refugee Support Service.
The 24-acre woodland garden is a delight for all ages, with magnificent spring-flowering plants, a children’s trail and a cosy tea-room serving delicious home-made soup and baking. There is a large car park and dogs are welcome in the garden on a lead.
There will be an BRC information stand, as well as a tombola and raffle stall.
