Two country brocantes are coming up in June, both in gorgeous surroundings in country house settings and where tea on the lawn is taken.

Bayfield Brocante 2024 

First up is the annual event held on Sunday, June 2, in parkland around Bayfield Hall, near Holt in north Norfolk. Some 50 dealers will spread themselves out including a few from Bayfield Hall Antiques & Interiors which is run from the old stables on the estate. The brocante is organised by antique rugs dealer Mal Cannell and his family in nearby Raveningham.

Summer in Somerset 

The Country Brocante organises three events annually in the gardens of country houses in southern England, with the next titled Summer in Somerset. This takes place in marquees at the 18th century Yarlington House, near Wincanton, on Friday and Saturday, June 21-22.

Organiser Lucy Fisher said: “This is our second time at Yarlington House and the main decorative tent will host dealers such as Three Kinds Decorative, Lynda North Antique Garden and Garden House Antiques in Petworth while the garden galleries offer vintage garden treasures.”
