Pining for normality in locked down Britain will only bring us pain but adapting to a new normal – that has possibilities.
Holdenby House has created a Covid-safe garden experience for its Sunday openings that proved extremely popular through the summer.
A statement released by Holdenby House said:
“We have had such a great response to our garden openings this year, that we have decided to keep them open for at least another two Sundays “ says James Lowther, owner of Holdenby House.
Normally, the gardens would have closed last weekend , at the end of September but the opportunity to explore the Holdenby’s historic gardens and magnificent Falconry Centre has meant that take-up of the presold tickets has been very enthusiastic and has shown no sign of diminishing.
“I think the chance to walk the beautiful grounds where King Charles 1 walked 375 years ago and see the sort of birds of prey that he would have flown is still a powerful draw” says James “ And we wanted to stay open as part of Radio Northampton’s celebration of our wonderful county and its treasures. “
Holdenby was one of only 8 houses in the UK to appear in the Smithsonian Channel’s
“ An American Aristocrat’s Guide to Great Estates “ .
Tickets for the opening may be purchased online at www.holdenby.com.
