Make it special

To celebrate the 150th wedding anniversary of Sir Henry and Lady Frances we want to help you get engaged in the most romantic way possible, in Northamptonshire's most romantic setting. 

Paw Prints and Poo!

Get closer to nature when you visit with our 'Paw Prints & Poo Trail' around the garden. Learn lots of fun facts about British wildlife and how to recognise their tracks, as well as other bits they leave behind! Littler legs can see how many things they can spot on the I-Spy checklist.

Easter Activities

Let the kids get creative and curious this Easter. Join us on the 3rd and 4th April when they can make their very own miniature garden, and bring the whole family to become 'eggsplorers' on our Easter trail, 5th and 6th April.
