|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 12:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until Sunday,March 24,2019
Sometimes all you want on Sunday afternoon at this time of year is a bit of fresh air and a stretching of the legs. No kitting up for a long walk in the hills, just a stroll around a green and peaceful place… We will be open fortnightly on Sundays for relaxed Sunday Saunters and our new ‘Cozy Orangery’ space will be open for hot chocolate and will be full of inviting seats covered in soft cushions, wraps and throws. Snuggle up and watch the sun streaming through the ancient windows. Let the Gardens bring you that hygge feeling this winter. Late Winter and early Spring is a fascinating time in our Gardens; the snowdrops, aconites and hellebores all begin to emerge. As the days get longer the birds (and the box hedges!) get more active. Soon our drifts of daffodils begin to shoot up. When we are lucky enough to have some sunshine the low raking light illuminates the walkways and creates intriguing silhouettes. We like to share these transient treasures, so Sunday opening offers a chance for our busy visitors to have a couple of hours of healthy pootering outdoors. On some of the days we will also strike up the firepit and indulge in toasted marshmallows and have some simple family crafts too. Here are the dates. Do check back to the events calendar on this site or on Facebook just to make sure. Times are 12 – 3pm. Prices £4 adults, £1 children over 5. Free for Garden Members Sunday 27th Jan 2019 Sunday 10th Feb Sunday 24th Feb. Sunday 10th March Sunday 24th March
