New autumn range

Stay cosy with the new autumn range

Brand new autumn range  with rugs to help you stay cosy this autumn and bags to brighten up the most overcast of days. New stock arriving weekly if you want to pick up some early Christmas presents.

Plant sales

Pick up something for your garden in the plant sales area

Seasonal plants and ready planted larger pots from a local nursery are delivered regularly. The garden team supplement this with plants propagated from the garden or any surplus produce harvest so you can take a bit of Beningbrough home.

A good read

Take a moment in the historic library to browse the second hand books

Brand new book range in the shop plus second hand reading room in the historic library in the hall - opened to visitors for the first time.

Jam or cream first?

Jam or cream first? That is the question.

Nothing completes a great day out like a cup of tea and an indulgent scone or cake. Especially when they are freshly baked on site and served with a smile.

Family friendly

Children's lunchtime meal boxes are on sale in the restaurant, with high chairs and a microwave also available so that our youngest visitors can tuck in!

Spot of lunch?
