Welcome to Wilderspin School

Winter Warmer Open Days

We’ve been open one day each month since October – to save energy, but we’re now preparing for our re-opening in March and our Spring & Summer season.

We reopen on Friday 29 March.

Our regular weekly opening times will then be Fridays – Saturdays 11am – 3pm, and 11am – 2pm on Sundays.
