Play 'Hello Petal' this May half term

Come and play “Hello Petal” with the birds, bugs and animals of Nymans. Be the first in your group to spot one, and call “Hello Petal” to greet them. The person with the most “Hello Petal” calls at the end of your visit is the winner. Each creature has some secrets of their busy life to share with you – as long as you give them a proper “Hello Petal” greeting! From Sat 29 May until Sun 6 June.

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside locations are open to visit. Shops are also open and outdoor seating is available at some cafés. Subject to government confirmation, we're planning to reopen houses in England and Wales from 17 May, and in Northern Ireland from 24 May. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. When space is available, particularly on weekdays, pre-booking isn't always necessary. But to guarantee, entry please always book in advance, especially at busier times like weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.

How Nymans house was built 

The medieval style manor is not as old as it seems. Before the Messel family bought Nymans it was a plain Regency style house, built around 1839 by George Harrington.
