Opening details

Gardens & Farm Opening:
The gardens and farm are open more often than the house. Usually from 11 - 4pm in early spring and 11 - 5pm at other times. On some days, the estate may close earlier than usual for a function. If it is important to visitors that a particular part should be accessible, please check by telephone before visiting.

House Opening:
The House usually opens one hour after and closes one hour before the advertised opening and closing times for the day. Occasionally, if we have a booking for a wedding, the House may close earlier than at the stated times - please check before your visit to be sure.
During the Great Annual Re-Creation, and some other events, only part of the house is used and the rest is closed.

Prices

Charges apply according to the Event (if any) on. Call for details.
