Hello February!

Did you know that our Snowdrop Walk is now open for the month of February, 10am until 3pm every day.  This gives a great opportunity to enjoy a walk through the peaceful walled garden and the woods. The walk is free to enjoy but if you wish to make a donation there is a collection tin and any money raised will go towards the upkeep of the woods. We advise suitable footwear as the path is uneven and there is a family of rabbits living in the woods who keep digging holes! Due to this, the walk is unsuitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

Potted snowdrops are on sale now in the main entrance so you can plant them at home and enjoy them in your own garden next year.

We would also love to see any photos of that you take so please share them with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
