Spring 2020

House & Gardens Open

Step into Springtime!

This is a lovely time to visit Kentwell! 

The House will be open, with all rooms not occupied by the family, on show. 

The Gardens will have swathes of daffodils, cowslips and primroses, with bugle, violets and forget-me-nots adding even more colour.   Tree blossom begins to show, notably on the may, and on the ancient fruit trees in the Walled Garden.  Grape hyacinths and tulips soak up the sunshine along the moat walls and the fernery has delicate wood anemones adding highlights to the shady calm.  The trees are all coming into leaf and a thousand shades of green rule the landscape.  

On the Farm, lambing is over for the season, which means the paddocks and parkland are full with this year's lambs.  The horses and our miniature Sheltand ponies, may be in the stables, but if the weather is fine, they are likely to be outside enjoying the spring weather (and the spring grass!).

The facilities

A perfect family day out

House, gardens & farm

On the day, the house opening info will be as shown in the event details, above. You can also enjoy your time in the colourful gardens and meet the animals on the farm.

Food & drink

The Stableyard tearoom will be serving our seasonal homemade menu sourced mainly from the gardens with meat from the farm. We also have a tasty range of cakes and biscuits to tempt you!

If you fancy your own food, there is a picnic site by the main gates with a marvellous view of the house; however, we do not allow picnics inside the gardens.

Be prepared
