  • RT @jemmskii: Another glorious day in the gardens at @Wentworth_House - the volunteers are so lovely, it makes such a difference to be given a friendly, kind welcome (especially lovely when they don’t mind spending time answering questions and chatting to an inquisitive 3 year old!) ☀️🌱🍦

We have meadows and woodland to roam in and historic landmarks to discover. The gardens are open every Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm and during school holidays we will be open every day, giving families plenty of opportunities to visit safely. From April 12th, The easing of pandemic regulations means visitors can take a seat and enjoy the views on the West Terrace while they enjoy tasty food and drink from our garden food kiosk, open daily 10-4pm Young visitors can Follow The Flock and discover little wooden birds hidden throughout the garden. A Trail Map, available for a small donation to the Trust, will guide you. The Flock, Wentworth Woodhouse's outdoor art installation to mark the pandemic, took over the East Front lawns last autumn thanks to local people who hand-decorated 10,000 birds with their thoughts and memories. Now 500 birds are being 'released' for sale. Look out for them on our fundraising stand and head to our new garden cabins to see mini flocks on display. The cabins will be ready to hire from June for everything from family afternoon teas and children's parties to craft sessions. From April 15th, children will also be able to play in the Mud Kitchen and a choice of games set up on the lawns. From May 19th This is the day everyone at Wentworth Woodhouse is looking forward to - it's when the Mansion will open up again.
