“There will be extra activities too this year, such as the build your own monster session in the Reed Barn on Wednesday October 24.”

The autumn snail trail can be enjoyed in the garden from Saturday 20 to Sunday October 28, from 11am to 4pm. It costs £1 per child plus normal entrance for non National Trust members.
