At Hatchlands you can explore the house with its dining room, saloon, garden hall, drawing room and music room.

Whenever our house is open, you can find specially designed, hand-made Georgian costumes for children to enjoy.
The gardens are well known for their amazing spread of bluebells in Little Wix Wood. It is one of the finest bluebell woods in the area. You can see the bluebells as part of their Long Walk trail that is detailed on their website. Also in the woods, you will find their natural adventure area for children. Get to grips with hand-crafted willow tunnels, domes, balance beams, sculptures and a totem pole; they’ve even got wood piles for den building. With picnic benches for tired parents to take a break.
They often have extra activities for families such as have-a-go archery and pony rides. Pony rides are for children age 2 to 11 and archery for children from the age of 6.
