23rd Apr, Hartland Abbey Bluebell Sunday, Hartland Abbey, 11am-5pm

Bluebell Days at Hartland Abbey are legendary and a wonderful opportunity to visit at a reduced entry price when the valley is looking at its most beautiful. The bluebells at Hartland Abbey carpet the walks from the Walled Gardens to the sea. A restored woodland path links the Summerhouse to the Gazebo and Blackpool Mill overlooking the Atlantic.  Along the way enjoy the bluebells, primroses, violets, wild anemones, wild orchids, foxgloves and much more. We love children and dogs and hope that you will bring as many as possible! There should be lots of lovely plants out in the gardens too; the early rhododendrons, camellias, tulips and later bulbs and early perennials amongst others. For the energetic, children and dogs, there will be plenty of opportunity for walking and exploring the 3½ miles of paths within the Abbey grounds. Bluebell Day entry prices: Adults £6, Children (age 5-15) £1, Under 5 free. Your entry ticket to the gardens and grounds includes the Museum, Exhibition and Gift Shop. Parking free. Entry to the house £4 extra. The house will be open from 2 -5pm (last admission 4.15pm). The Old Kitchen Tea Rooms will be serving their delicious light lunches and home made cream teas. For further information www.hartlandabbey.com or please ring 01237 441496/441234
