Details

This is an exciting journey from sheep shearing to seeing the wool spun and in the traditional Tudor way, watch dyers and cloth being made.

The sheep shearer will be hard at work all day in the stable yard, shearing Kentwell’s rare breed Norfolk Horn Sheep.

If you fancy your own Kentwell ‘fleece’ they will be available to buy.

Kentwell’s gardens and grounds are often described as ‘magical’ and you will see why when visiting the Walled & Sunken garden’s with their unique and special interest features. Look out for the Pied Piper Hedge, an original Tudor Ice House and the Yew Castle.

This year Kentwell has extended the Story Book Adventure Trail to encourage children to get ‘outdoors and let their imagination have fun’. The trail includes nineteen stories and characters who you will meet on your journey around the Kentwell Estate. Characters include the enormous ‘Crunching Munching Caterpillar’ who is over 6 yards long to magnificent sculptured metal 'Gorilla who wanted to Grow Up' - and each book and every character is represented in its own unique way.

A brilliant day that all the family will enjoy.
