Springtime at Lyveden

Tresham's garden lodge surrounded by cowslips.

Although we’re closed as construction work continues, the grounds at Lyveden are waking up from winter and coming alive with an array of spring colour.

Joys of spring

Our historic orchard bursts with the white and pink blossoms of a variety of fruit trees.  Be sure to come back in autumn to see whether it's been a fruitful harvest!

In early spring, the raised terrace and moat banks will come to life with a carpet of yellow primroses and cowslips.

You can spot wildflowers such as violets, primroses, Lady's smock and cowslips on the woodland floor.

Over the last couple of winters, our outdoor team of volunteers have been busy planting spring-flowering bulbs in the woodlands and around our oak tree. You can now spot bluebells in the woods and crocuses and daffodils under the oak tree.
