The places we care for are a riot of colour at this time of year, as spring shrugs off the starkness of winter and bursts into brilliant bloom.

Stoneywell opens its doors
A rare surviving example of a traditional Arts and Crafts family home, Stoneywell in Leicestershire, opens its doors on 2 February 2015 offering you an insight into a pivotal moment in Britain’s art and design history and an intimate portrait of domestic life.
Stoneywell is open seven days a week until 30 November when it will close for two months for conservation. Due to its small size, all visits must be booked in advance.
