Notice: Snowdrop Festival: Our Snowdrop Festival runs until Sunday 9 March. The property can get very busy, particularly at weekends and during the half-term school holidays. If your diary is flexible you may wish to visit on one of the quieter days. Traffic delays may be experienced near the property and on occassions we may have to close the car-parks to new arrivals when they reach full capacity. Please follow the directions of the car-park stewards when arriving. During the festival the Redwoods restaurant opens at 9am and the gardens at 9.30am. Enjoy the snowdrops.
Jacobean-style house with gardens and a working watermill
A passion for tradition and impressing guests inspired one man to transform a run-down country house and desolate landscape.
At the age of 30, the future Lord Fairhaven began to create his first home. Wanting to inspire and surprise visitors, he created a spectacular garden with planting for all seasons and a cosy house in which to entertain. Life revolved around horse racing and shooting, and guests enjoyed 1930s luxury.
Inside: fine furnishings, books, paintings, silver and rare clocks give a feeling of opulence.
Outside: 46 hectares (114 acres) offer vibrant colour, delicious scents and the simple pleasures of nature.
