Rumpelstiltskin trail

The Grimm brothers notoriously wrote some grisly fairytales. As part of our crime and punishment week we are inviting you to take on the 'Rumpelstilskin trail' to see what you can uncover in the gardens.

£2.50 per trail, includes a prize. Normal admission applies.

Crime and Punishment of the eighteenth-century 

We've been carrying out research as part of our project to revive and restore the walled garden and pleasure grounds at Berrington. During our research, we discovered that a murder took place here in the eighteenth-century. Inspired by this discovery, we've created a trail around the gardens where you can take on the role of Georgan detective to see if you can solve the crime. 

£1 per person, normal admission charges apply.

The Natural Play Area

Get closer to nature and embrace the colours of autumn outdoors in our natural play area. This is a space for you to let out your adventurous side. You could even have a go at doing some of your '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4'. 

We even have picnic benches surrounding the play area so those of you who may wish to prop their feet up for a moment can just sit back and enjoy the view.

Tea-room and gift shop

Tuck into something delicious or find yourself a treat here at Berrington. Our tea-room is filled with seasonal meals that use some of the fresh produce from the garden. From soups to cakes, there is sure to be something that will warm you up after being in the fresh autumn air.

You can also find that on busier days we open our Stables Cafe which can offer you light bites, a place to sit with your four legged friend and take-away hot or cold drinks.

Our gift-shop is also filled with new autumn ranges, including cosy throws and random rugs, so don't forget to pick up a gift for someone special or simply treat yourself.
