Spring Flower Fortnight: 8 - 15 March, 9am - 5pm

Come and explore Barnsdale at this exciting time of year as everything starts to burst into life; along with all the fresh new foliage and drifts of spring flowers throughout the Gardens you'll be able to enjoy the new Geoff Hamilton Winter Border at its very best. Then visit the tea room for a warming drink and slice of cake, lunch or afternoon tea… or browse our plant nursery and shop for great gardening gifts.


The tea room will be serving warming drinks, light meals and afternoon teas daily and the nursery is open every day for sales of plants.
