Daffodil Day is a lovely chance to come with the family or friends to see the wonderful collection of historic daffodils, many planted 150 years ago. Our spring flower days are really good fun days out for everyone including the children and dogs. Visitors will be able to see not only the daffodils, but also lots of camellias, hellebores, early spring bulbs, mimosas and our lovely wild primroses and violets. There is plenty of opportunity for some really good walks including to the beach and to Blackpool Mill. Enjoy walking along stunning woodland paths through wild flowers to the Gazebo and the restored Woodland Summer House, with its welcoming log fire. A new circular walk has proved very popular since it opened in 2012. The Abbey itself will be open between 1 –4 pm at a small extra charge. Dogs are really welcome on leads but there will be plenty of space to let them run free as well. The Orchard, normally closed, will be open with its beautiful wild daffodils. The Old Kitchen Tea room will have a selection of delicious traditional and modern cakes and biscuits and some gluten free too! There will be homemade soup, cheesy scones, pies, pasties, hand made sausage rolls, Pulled Pork and Coleslaw baguettes, Veggie Homity pie plus a selection of sandwiches, baguettes and other tasty snacks.
