We opened our doors for nine days this November for our fourth annual Winter Festival in the run up to Christmas. From 23 November to 1 December visitors explored the house dressed for a family Christmas, relaxed by the roaring fire in the Saloon and picked up some great gift ideas in our shop.
We would like to thank all who helped at the festival and also those who came along and enjoyed it. Your presence made it the best ever.
