Sunnycroft Steps into Spring

Sunnycroft, the National Trust house in Wellington is looking forward to welcoming visitors for its main season. The house is now back up and open for fours days a week until November 2014.

The suburban villa has lots of new and exciting things happening as we head into the spring. Inside the house there is a new display of embroidery relating to Miss Lander, the last owner, as well as a fully dressed gentleman’s dressing room. Outside the garden is bursting into life and Joel Richards, Sunnycroft’s Gardner, is running Muddy Mondays through March where he is available in the vegetable garden from 11am to answer questions from aspiring vegetable growers.

House and Visitor Services Manager, Claire Reeves says: “It feels like the house is coming alive as we have an action packed programme for the coming months. In April we have local choirs performing on Saturday lunchtimes, special wallpapers tours in the house on Mondays and our annual Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt over Easter Weekend. We have had a lot of support from local people in the last few years and look forward to seeing everyone again this season!”

Sunnycroft will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 10.30am to 5pm, with last admission to the House at 4pm.  Normal admission charges apply, free to National Trust members and under 5s. For further details on events visit or call the property on 01952 242884.
