Making the most of spring at Knightshayes

A grandparent and child walking in the Spring garden at Knightshayes

It's the time when colour starts creeping across the fields and gardens, blowing away all the winter cobwebs and giving us lots of opportunities to get back outdoors and enjoying nature. There's lots to do and spot at Knightshayes at this vivid time of the year.

Feast your eyes on blossoming flowers 

You can take a long stroll around the garden and see the flowers bursting into life. Head to Holly's Wood to see an abundance of magnolias, or into John's Wood to see bluebells emerging. There's rhododendron to see in its early stages of flowering at the bottom of the garden, to the edge of the sweeping south lawns, with its carpet of crocus.

Colour across the parkland 

There's not only new life in the garden. You can see swathes of daffodils, snow drops and early bluebells across the parkland and in Impey. Don't forget to keep an eye for new lambs in the fields next to the drive.
