Easter House Opening and  Easter Egg Trail

Sunday 21st & Monday 22nd April 2019

Join us at Deene Park this Easter bank holiday and enjoy the history of a stunning country house and take part in our family friendly Easter egg garden trail!

Situated near Corby, Northamptonshire, Deene Park is a beautiful country house, owned and lived in by the Brudenell family since 1514.  Visitors access the house on a self-guided tour, allowing them to explore a variety of rooms from different periods, all decorated with family portraits and possessions which provide an impressive yet intimate glimpse into stately home life.

Like the house, the garden has undergone many changes during its 500-year history but has never looked better than it does today.  The formal gardens on the south side of this beautiful historic house give way to a vista of parkland and lakes linked by a canal; at its narrowest junction the canal is spanned by a fine stone bridge reminiscent of pictures in fairy tale books.  The red brick walls surrounding what were once the kitchen gardens are the oldest feature having been built in the early 18th century.  Although no longer used to raise fruit and vegetables, its outer wall provides the backdrop for the long-mixed borders filled with scented philadelphus, roses, shrubs and masses of herbaceous plants and summer bedding.

Child admission includes an Easter egg trail.  Have fun, explore and seek out the brightly coloured eggs which have been hidden throughout our magnificent gardens.  Unscramble the letters written on the eggs to uncover our secret word and claim a prize!
