Children running through the rose garden at Mottisfont, Hampshire

May half term at Mottisfont


Date: 25th May 2024 - 2nd Jun 2024
Time: 10am-5pm
Price: Range from £2 per trail plus property admission

Choose from one of three themed activity packs to help you explore Mottisfont at your own pace.

Find creative inspiration as you discover different artworks in the house and gallery, explore the gardens to find out what’s growing at this time of year, or take a walk for a closer look at the natural world. Each activity booklet includes puzzles and challenges to complete while you explore, as well as a themed scene to cut out, decorate and keep. Packs include activity booklets and coloured pencils.

Please note that Mottisfont’s famous rose season takes place in early summer, so peak admission prices apply between 10am and 3pm from 27 May.

Rose season and bank holidays can be very busy times at Mottisfont. We open at 10am, and mornings tend to be busier than afternoons – most of our visitors arrive before 2pm, which can cause congestion in the car park. If you arrive after 2pm, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the trail. If you have the flexibility, a weekday visit is generally quieter than a weekend, even during school holidays. If you can only visit over the weekend, Saturdays are usually less busy than Sundays.
