Families Love Barnsdale Gardens

Families are always welcome at Barnsdale. We love to see children happily skipping through the gardens, munching on a big slice of chocolate cake, or learning something about the birds, flowers and wildlife that make the gardens so special.


Throughout the year there is always something to enjoy and here are a few examples but if you want to keep up to-date with what is going on at Barnsdale then simply register for free internet membership or check our events pages.

Family Events

Mothering Sunday

Free entry for all mums accompanied by at least one of their children.


Nesting Day

Bring your binoculars and join our local bird expert Philip Rudkin for regular walks around our gardens and learn about the best trees and shrubs to plant for nesting birds. Come and see our own nest box camera in action.


Father's Day

A free brunch and Garden admission for dad, when with another paying adult.


Willow Weaving

Our local willow worker, John Shone of Rutland Willows, will be on site in the Gardens and through the day will be holding several demonstrations of this rural craft.
