Learning opportunities

Stephens House & Gardens has a rich history, and we wish to share that with students of all ages, the local community and our visitors. The house & gardens have played a large part in the local history and provide a perfect learning environment. As well as the history we have a thriving natural habitat teeming with interesting wildlife, from the birds in the trees to the koi in the pond and the stag beetles in their protected habitat, we have an abundance of interesting natural resources. 

We encourage all ages to learn the history or explore the wildlife of Stephens House & Gardens.

You can download our Children's Trail from the link above to learn more about the site with your family and Friends.
