Family with children exploring the meadows together
We know how important getting out in nature is right now. From Monday the  12th April we are excited to once again open our Tudor grounds for family trails and outdoor crafts to enjoy together.

The safety of our visitors is our number one priority so to ensure social distancing, we have reduced our capacities and tickets must be booked in advance.

Discover the Turret House and Tudor ruins

Explore meadow filled landscapes

Wander through a meadow haven, taking in colour strewn vistas and delve down to the detail of individual flowers and their pollinators. Explore a Tudor herb garden before loosing yourself in the lavender labyrinth.

Children's trails, activities and play

Enjoy our family nature trails and craft activities with a different theme each month (advance booking recommended). Bring your bucket and spade to our giant sandpit, climb around our adventure playground and run wild in our open spaces.
