Gardens Open 11am to 3pm 

One of the best sights of Spring has to be newborn lambs!  On our lambing days, you will see ewes about to lamb and those with new-born lambs in the lambing pens in our Tudor Stables. It is not only heartwarming, but educational too if a visit coincides with visitors seeing a lamb being born.

It's the season for parents and children to enjoy the gardens too with massed snowdrops gradually giving way to drifts of daffodils. Elsewhere winter starkness shows off the the shapes of trees, especially the gnarled arms of the ancient espaliered fruit trees in the Walled Garden standing like old men in line? With so many yews and conifers there's much colour there too.

The fish in the moats delight all. Will our Grey Lag and Canada Geese visitors have returned? Will Percy the Peacock's mates who left him in the autumn come back?

For younger visitors there's the Tudor Rose Courtyard Maze, the 'magic' hornbeam circle, the Yew Castle with its secret tunnels to explore and plenty of other surprises.  There is a varied storybook trail for them follow too.

The gardens in every season are dominated by the Moats and much mellow redbrick of and around the Hall, built by the Clopton family 500 years ago.
