With striking colours, perfumed scents and relaxing spaces the walled gardens are the ideal backdrop for making memories. Families can get closer to nature and spend quality time together while exploring our habitats and the animals that live there. Alternatively, our explorer backpacks are a one-stop shop for budding nature lovers.

Every Thursday and Saturday throughout the holidays we’re helping you tick off some of the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾, the National Trust’s ultimate bucket list for kids. Join our rangers for cooking on a campfire, den building, wild art and much more! For those rainy days the mansion house is bursting with stories of animal menageries, war heroism and pioneering women.

Books To Look Out For In July Edible Mushrooms: A Forager’s Guide by Geoff Dann The culmination of a lifetime passion, Edible Mushrooms is a state of the art guide packed with high-quality photos and up -to-date information. It features over 300 of the most important edible species describing the best tasting ones, where to find them, when they are at their best and how to preserve and cook them. The important poisonous fungi are included as well as a few that are of interest because they are useful as something other than food. Clear, user friendly and definitive, it achieves the balance between caution, practicality and adventure that a forager needs.

The Break by Marian Keys The Break explores one of the most pervading issues of our times, the challenges of sustaining a long-term relationship and, with it, a very modern dilemma: would you consider taking ‘a break’ from your relationship? "It is classic Marian Keyes: a blizzard of wit and wisecracks, wrapped round a subject that is deeply serious” Kate Saunders, The Times Amy’s husband Hugh says he isn’t leaving her, just taking a break. He still loves her, but needs six months to lose (or find?) himself in South-East Asia, and there is nothing that she can say or do about it… Examining a relationship being tested by bereavement, blended families, and teenage pregnancy, and the temptation of affairs and extra-marital sex, The Break isn't a story about falling in love but about staying in love, against all the many obstacles.

From the celebrated French troubadour suffering from writer’s block, to the Persian perfumer-poet claiming to have written the most beautiful words ever committed to parchment, all are descending on the castle of a man whose motives run far deeper than that of a benevolent host. Luke Waterson’s compelling novel weaves the tales of the charismatic players of the very first Eisteddfod, still Europe’s largest competitive festival of poetry and music to this day. Available now.
