Easter at Stoneywell

A family explore the stone fort in the garden of Stoneywell, Leicestershire

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 -  not least the host of golden daffodils that cover the four acres of garden. In the early 1900s Sydney Gimson had two varieties of daffodil planted here which, in the following century, have been able to seed and multiply in the rough grass, forming a vast yellow carpet of many thousands of flowers.

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.
