After the wettest winter for many years we are enjoying a spectacular spring. The ponds are full, the water courses bubbling away and the vegetation exploding with an exuberance bordering on vulgarity. But who said a delightful day out had to break the bank? This May bank holiday, set your sights on Hatton Country World, where parking is a mere £2 for the entire day, unlocking a treasure trove of experiences without denting your wallet.

Nestled within the picturesque landscapes, Hatton Country World beckons with its charming blend of attractions. Start your day by wandering through the lush greenery of the Hatton Garden Centre, where a kaleidoscope of blooms and foliage awaits. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just have a penchant for floral beauty, this oasis offers a delightful escape.

Next, meander through the quaint pathways of the shopping village where you’ll discover 15 independent traders showcasing an array of unique finds in enchanting converted Victorian farm buildings. From handmade crafts to artisanal treasures, each stall promises a glimpse into the creativity and craftmanship of local artisans.

And don’t miss the chance to explore the outdoor market, where additional traders tempt with their wares. From handcrafted goods to artisanal products, each stall offers a piece of local charm to take home as a memento of your thrifty day out.

As hunger pangs strike, indulge your palate at one of Hatton Country World’s dining gems. The Gardener’s Retreat Restaurant invites you to savour hearty meals, delectable cakes, and the quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea (must be pre-booked). Alternatively, head to the Spinning Jenny Hole in the Wall for a relaxed atmosphere surrounded by the countryside, a fully stocked bar, and mouth-watering hot food options, including succulent burgers.

Or pop on to our pub the Hatton Arms, our charming pub overlooking the historic Grand Union Canal just 5 minutes’ drive from the Hatton Country World site. Here, the famous Stairway to Heaven Hatton Lock steals the show, providing a picturesque backdrop for your visit. 

And if you’re looking to build up your appetite you can walk to the Hatton arms from the Hatton Country World site, following one of our 3 scenic circular country walks through the delightful Warwickshire countryside? Each route offers stunning views and the opportunity to immerse yourself in nature. You can download all three of our walk routes here to plan your perfect outdoor adventure.
