Bluebell Sundays are back – 16th and 23rd April 2023

We are thrilled to be able to welcome visitors back for our Bluebell Sundays. The bluebells at Hartland Abbey carpet the walks from the Walled Gardens to the sea with restored paths leading to the Woodland Summerhouse, the Gazebo and Blackpool Mill overlooking the Atlantic. The restored Summerhouse was always a favourite spot for the family to picnic and for the children to play. If it is cold there will be a lovely log fire burning!  Along the way enjoy our 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, azaleas,  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 leading to the coast at Blackpool Mill and to see the locations where filming has taken place in recent years – the most recent being Enid Blyton’s ‘Malory Towers’ Series 1 and 2 with 3 coming soon, John Le Carre’s ‘The Night Manager’, ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ and many more.
