Bluebell Sundays – 14th and 21st April 2024
We are thrilled to welcome visitors to 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 picnic spot for the family in the old days. 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!

Lovely spring plants should be 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 is lots of walking and exploring on the 3½ miles of paths within the Abbey grounds leading to the coast at Blackpool Mill where filming has taken place in recent years – the most recent being Enid Blyton's 'Malory Towers' Series 1 – 5 , John Le Carre's 'The Night Manager', 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' and many more.
