Step back in time

Join us inside the house for a step back in time. Marvel at the portraits, listen to the stories of our talking picture or just simply enjoy the beautiful interiors here at Claydon.

50 Things to do before you're 11¾

Come along and tick off all the things on your list here at Claydon. You can follow the trails, search for bugs inside or out, take a walk down by the lake or build a den in the trees. We have lots of room to run and play.

Family fun

Plenty of space to have some fun

Children can dress up in period costumes in the Paper Room or try Florence Nightingale's bed for size amongst other things. There's always time to play games on the terrace or take a walk around the lake.

Perfect picnics

We've amazing views on the West Terrace from where you can take a stroll down to the lake. Why not stop for a picnic or perhaps bring a flask of warming soup and enjoy the stunning vista whatever the weather.
