From meeting the animals to venturing indoors to admire Thomas Bewick's original collection, this little beauty has plenty on offer. Take a seat outdoors and enjoy a picnic, see a printing demonstration, release your inner Bear Grylls or visit the bees at the hives.

A Bewick Print

Have your very own Thomas Bewick print 

Thomas Bewick was ahead of his time. Using Box Wood and patiently carving intricately detailed pictures into the blocks of wood, he created masterpieces of all shapes and sizes. Now, you can own your very own. The National Trust doesn't use his original blocks very often however, we do love to celebrate his work. If you would like to own a piece of Bewick's art too, then take a look at what's on offer.....
