Events in Devon
The bluebell season runs throughout April and the beginning of May but normally the last two weeks in April are when the flowers are at their best.
Bring your children and dogs to enjoy some lovely walks within the Abbey grounds from the Walled Gardens to the sea carpeted with beautiful bluebells and other wildflowers. A newly restored circular, woodland path links the Summerhouse to the Gazebo and Blackpool Mill overlooking the Atlantic. The Summerhouse was a favourite spot for the family to picnic and for the children to play. See ‘Barton Cottage’ which was the home of the Dashwood family in the BBC production of ‘Sense and Sensibility’, filmed here.
Once you have worked up an appetite, enjoy lunch in the Old Kitchen Tea Rooms where there will be some special chocolaty treats as well as the delicious, homemade menu! Outside, there will be a barbecue of mouth-watering burgers.
The house and grounds will be open with the museum and shop open too.
Bluebell Day entry prices: Adults £5, Children (age 5-15) £1, Under 5 free.Parking free. Entry to the house £4 extra, open 12-4pm
