You may have seen a building nestled in the trees near the Adventure Playground at Harewood; Terrace Cottage. Previously not open to the public, we're pleased to be opening the cottage up to visitors in the near future as the venue for our Second Hand Bookshop. We'll have Paperbacks and Hardbacks, books for adults and children - and a comfy area for you to enjoy the books at your leisure. Our plan is to make Harewood sustainable - and the bookshop will be the ultimate recycling facility.. Bring along a book, buy a book, donate a book.. and the cycle repeats.. (All proceeds go to the Harewood Charitable Trust).
Our all-new event for February half term went down a treat with everyone!
The plan was to host a week of nature-themed fun and activities for little ones and adults alike...helping our visitors to make the most of Harewood and the great outdoors at this time of year - and blow those winter cobwebs away!
Nature Fest: Go wild outdoors at Harewood this February half term turned out to be a fantastic idea and a wonderful event.
Whether they had a thirst for knowledge or an enthusiasm for the outdoors or just wanted to have fresh air and fun at the Harewood, our visitors unanimously approved the new event!
With so much going on visitors we're spoilt for choice: grow your own, meet the bugs, storytelling sessions, nature trails, Bird Garden walk-talk-feed tours, cookery demos in the Old Kitchen, willow weaving and Garden trails to the Walled Garden to see the work going on there developing Harewood's original Kitchen Garden.
If you missed it this year be sure to join us next year!
