  • The breathtaking views from scout point
  • The cocktail cabinet in the sitting room
  • Freshly baked cakes and home cooked food in the café

Join us at one of our events

There's family fun to be had in the house and gardens - why not pick up a spotter trail in the house, or hunt for treasure in the gardens with a pirate trail? Just ask for the trails when you arrive.


This spring there is fun for all the family with Easter events, and opportunities to develop your gardening skills at a drop-in workshop.
