'Rewards and Fairies' winter garden trail

Our 'Rewards and Fairies' winter event continues in the New Year with a winter garden trail. Take a stroll through the grounds to find fairy houses and a wise old tree spirit.

Enjoy a stroll in the winter gardens

This winter there's a great opportunity for families to explore the gardens at Bateman's.  Our 'Rewards and Fairies' winter event includes a winter garden trail.

Hunt for fairy houses and tree spirits

Pick up our delightfully illustrated trail booklet at visitor reception and head off into the gardens on your search.  Start at Puck's toadstool ring and then head off in search of hidden fairy homes and a wise old tree spirit.

The trail booklet costs £1.50 and there's lots of challenges to be filled and lovely pictures to colour in.  At the end of the trail, there's a woodland creature prize to collect.

Extend your stroll out into the estate

For those that want to spend a bit more time out and about, then there are several estate walks. The walks are suitable for all the family and you can take your dog too, provided it's on a lead.

Light refreshment at the end of the day

During January, our tea room will be undergoing an extensive refurbishment so we're unable to offer our usual full range of refreshments. We'll have a small catering outlet selling hot and cold drinks and snacks only, so please plan your visit accordingly.

Look out for details of the re-opening of our tea room in February. We think you'll like what we have planned.
