We are looking forward to opening after the chilly winter. The Gardens and Tearooms will be open for weekends in February.

Easter treasure hunt Easter Weekend 11th- 13th April

This year we will have our annual treasure hunt around the garden - each child will be given a basket and a set of clues... they then have to find the golden nuggets  and win a chocolate surprise at the end! There will also be an opportunity to meet some of our new little lambs and enjoy the adventure playground.



May is a busy month here - the gardens, castle and tearooms are open every day. There will be a beautiful carpet of bluebells in the Wilderness  and last year we also had very rare white bluebells, so come along and enjoy springtime at its best!
