February half-term signs of spring trail

Come and celebrate the start of spring as Glendurgan slowly emerges from its winter sleep.

Pick up a spotter sheet and use it for inspiration to see what signs of spring await to be discovered on a wander through the garden. What sounds, smells, colours and textures will you find? 

There's plenty wildlife to be spotted in the garden for any beady eyed visitors keen to look out for robins, insects or even something at home in the pond. There's also a free seed planting activity on throughout half term for anybody who wishes to help a plant grow at home over spring.

The fish cellar in Durgan village will be open all week so visitors can take the opportunity to borrow a blanket or warm up by the log burner and have a chat with the volunteers.

And why not finish off your visit with a well earned hot chocolate or cream tea in the Tea house at the top of the garden? The perfect compliment to a wintery walk.
