Spring outdoors at Nuffield Place

Nuffield Place house with spring flowers blooming in front of it

After being closed for the winter months, Nuffield Place's re-opening ties in with the beginning of spring. Find out how to make the most of a spring day out at this peaceful house and gardens.

In the garden

After being closed during the winter months, Nuffield Place’s garden is starting to come to life again, making for an ideal place to have a stroll round in the milder weather.

Look out for herbaceous borders starting to bloom after the winter months and a variety of spring bulbs making an appearance in the beds throughout the garden. A highlight towards the end of April is the foxgloves that come out, a sight not to be missed.


The woodland at Nuffield Place has a wonderful display of bluebells towards the end of April and beginning of May, although there are many factors that can affect when they decide to appear.

Please make sure when visiting the bluebells in the woods that you keep to the marked out path through the middle, so this spectacular sight can stay looking spectacular for years to come.
