This weekend, the house opens its doors for the first time in 2017, with the farm and the gardens opening a week earlier to give families the chance to see dozens of spring daffodils and to see and hold the baby lambs that have been born.

There was even the added bonus of newborn piglets.

“Visitor numbers were up considerably on last year,” said marketing and business development manager Sharon Scott.

“The weather was really lovely, so we were very busy on Sunday.”

As well as annual events including Eastertide and Kentwell Through the Ages, the stately home will be hosting new events this year, including an open-air cinema in the summer and a weekend of magic and mystery.
