Easter at Mr Straw's House

Mr Straw's House Walled Kitchen Garden

As the weather changes and the spring flowers begin to bloom, join us at Mr Straw’s House this Easter.

As spring gets well and truly underway, it seems like the lambs frolicking in the fields are not the only animals feeling a little mischievous. Florence Straw contributed a range of ornaments and trinkets to the large collection of everyday objects we care for and some of her woollen pompom birds have been causing quite a stir. They have invited some of their friends round and these fluffy little chicks are running amok in the house.

Can you help us work out where these naughty animals are hiding as you explore the house on your tour?

Stay a little longer with us this Easter too, and enjoy the gardens as they spring back into life. Take a look into the greenhouse and see Walters’ cacti collection. Take a peek into the Washhouse and the kitchen and explore our outdoor spaces. If the weather is warm enough, enjoy a cup of tea from the tea room with a book from the second-hand bookshop.
