As well as these activities, Easter at Stoneywell is a great time to come and unwind in the garden and woodland. Discover a myriad of spring flowers bringing beautiful colour to the garden. 

And if you're venturing through the hidden paths in the heather or through the oak trees of Stoneywell Woods, keep an eye out for a carved lizard and an abundance of creatures great and small as they return from hibernation.

No visit is complete without popping into the tea-room for a light lunch or sweet treat. If the weather is nice, bring along a picnic to enjoy in the garden.
