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.
