February at Holker Hall in Cumbria

Frolicking February Fun at Holker Hall in Cumbria

For the first time during spring half term, Holker Hall & Gardens will be offering visitors a sneak peek of what the spring season has on offer at one of Cumbria’s finest stately homes.

Opening daily from Saturday 12th until Sunday 27th February, Holker Hall is the perfect location to get out in the fresh air and shake off the winter cobwebs with family and friends.

A fun packed fortnight of activities awaits with spring nature hunts and guided walks around the gardens and parklands. From Wednesday 23rd to Sunday 27th February, families are invited to take part in ‘Art from the Woodland’, a spring inspired nature hunt for all ages. Families will be taken on a guided walk through Holker’s beautiful parkland to discover ancient trees, mysterious woodlands and spot the early signs of spring, collecting seeds, bark, leaves and anything they can along the way to create their very own nature collage. Finish off your visit with a trip to the Holker Courtyard CafĂ© where a special half term menu will be on offer.
