  • Gnocchi (Make, Poach and quick pan sauce)
  • Seasonal Risotto
  • Focaccia
  • Pasta (tagiatelle and Ravioli, finish with Woodspeen olive oil, basil, toasted pine nuts and parmesan)

  • Sparkle Bright Summer
    17/08/2022 - 04/09/2022 All day

    Sparkle Bright Summer

    Welcome to the Sparkle Bright Summer at Tumblestone Hollow this August. The giant Sparkle Bright flowers are set to bloom at Tumblestone Hollow just in time. Tumblestone Hollow will be looking spectacular with lots going on including story telling, bubbles and our Tumblestone-themed temporary transfers.

    Enjoy delicious food and refreshments including mouth watering wood fired pizzas made by our Italian pizzaiolo, soft serve gelato ice cream from Bologna and hand blended American style milk shakes.

    Tickets to the Sparkle Bright Summer must be purchased in advance.  Tickets are timed and allow access to the Tumblestone Hollow Adventure Playground and Stonor Gardens.

    If you have never been to Tumblestone Hollow then welcome to their mysterious World which has been hiding in plain site, right under our noses for many millennia. Throughout this time, the people who live there have been quietly going about their business, keeping the standing stones safe, that surround their magical home.

    Finally, after more than 552 and a half years of careful negotiation between the Stonor family and the people of Tumblestone Hollow, they have agreed to let us all in to their wonderful world.

    It’s a place of laughter and light, shadow and sunshine, peace and tranquility and most of all, it’s a place to play with friends, with family young and old, and most importantly a beautiful, magical place to play together.
