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.

    Family History Advice Clinic

    Just beginning your family history research and need some advice? Baffled by so many competing research websites?

    Banging your head against a brick wall? Or struggling with some other issues? In this one-to-one session, one of our seasoned advisors will help you make some progress.

    To make the most of your session our advisors will carry out some preliminary research beforehand, and for that we need you provide us with some information please:

    • to tell us what you’ve done so far
    • describe the nature of the problem
    • attach copies of any key documents such as BMD certificates, research notes
    • if possible, provide a link to a family tree we can view (members – if your tree has been uploaded to YourTrees, that would be perfect) or at least attach a copy of a hand drawn tree of the immediate family of the people you’re researching

    After you’ve booked you’ll be taken to a page where you can enter that information.

    You can do it later but it’s much better to prepare that material now and complete the form while you’re at the keyboard and the topic is fresh in your mind.

    Bookings close 7 days before the session to give us time to research your submission.

    But every extra day helps, as we’re manned solely by part-time volunteers so the earlier you book, the better.

    These sessions are face-to-face.

    It is now the end of the breeding season and most of the owls are off finding suitable places to roost over the winter so they are hard to find.

    These experiences will continue from March 2022 so keep an eye out for dates or if interested drop us a line and we will contact you when they are back on.
