Although The Fells Main House is closed for the season, there is another world to explore during the winter. The ground is frozen, many of the bushes wrapped to ward off the nibbling deer and the fountains are drained. But if you stand quietly amid the frozen gardens you will be aware of new sights and sounds. Be dazzled by the many colors of the winter Heather Bed, listen to the music of the rustling foliage & observe the winter birds including cardinals. The trails are easily accessible and the grounds are open for self-touring, dawn to dusk every day. You can hike, snowshoe or Nordic ski – conditions permitting. Or attend one of the following activities:
