National Trust property Gunby Hall and Gardens, between Spilsby and Skegness is set to reopen for the 2015 season on Saturday, March 21.

The opening has been delayed following poor ground conditions in the car park.

“We can’t wait to welcome visitors again”, said House Manager Astrid Gatenby.”

“our many volunteers are also excited to be back on duty and we have some exciting events and open days coming up in the weeks ahead so it’s great that National Trust gave us the green light to safely open our gates for 2015,” continued Astrid.

“The garden is full of spring colour from daffodils, hellebores and primroses and are perfect for a spring day outing. Three floors of the house are ready for exploring too, as are walks to the Gunby ice house pond and Monksthorpe Chapel. Bring a picnic and make a day of it and dogs on leads are also welcome in the gardens”.

On Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 Gunby’s gardens and house will be open for free, as part of the ‘Discover Lincolnshire Weekend’ and over April 5-6 (Sunday-Monday) there will be Cadbury’s Easter Egg trails throughout the gardens. Normal admission charges apply on these days and cost £1 per trail).

The Gunby Orchard will be opened especially throughout March and April to share the abundance of spring flowers with visitors.

The gardens and tea-room are open daily from 11am till 5pm, the house is closed on Thursday and Friday but open on all other days from 11 till 5pm (last admission at 4pm).
