Work progressing at the Gardener's Cottage, the Mauricovna, at Červený Dvůr in South Bohemia
December 2015 - Work is currently progressing on the bay window roofs and attic floor of the Gardener's Cottage, the Mauricovna, at Červený Dvůr in South Bohemia. The Friends have held working holidays here each year since 2011.
The cottage is an important feature in the landscape garden. It was a ruin, but with the help of UK volunteers it is being restored and will be used as a therapy unit by the hospital situated in the château nearby. Over the winter professional builders are fitting structural timbers.
Next year we have three holidays there in the weeks 4th/11th June - 11th/18th June - 18th/25th June. For more information please email Peter Jamieson at: with your preferred date and your contact details. For more about all the planned holidays, also in other locations, click here .
