Teachers – book your autumn school day visits now!

September 9, 2016

We are now taking bookings for autumn day visits.

This is a lovely time of year to visit How Hill and a great time to learn about seasonal changes in nature – now a feature of the national curriculum.

The autumn colours in the secret gardens are beautiful;  the nature reserve has fewer visitors so you are more likely to see exciting wildlife and the mosquitoes of summer have all gone!

We have a large car park for coaches and a thatched outdoor classroom to make your base for the day.

Please contact Education Manager Lizzy Ames lizzy@howhilltrust.org.uk

How Hill tearoom closed until next spring

September 8, 2016

A big thank you to everyone who has visited our tearoom this season. The tearoom made over £20,000 – that’s a lot of slices of Bridget the cook’s fantastic home made cakes! This money goes directly towards supporting the educational work of the How Hill Trust.

Our tearoom will be open again next May and we hope to see you again then.
