Keeping you cosy and warm

Take a piece of Croft home with you.

We've got ready chopped bags for just £3, ideal for your woodburner or log fire at home. Wood from the parkland is sourced from hardwoods, mainly oak and ash. If you're local to Croft, our ranger may be able to deliver a load to your door. Email us for more information.

Second hand bookshop

Give a gift this Christmas © John Hammond

We've received lots of donations of books thanks to a recent appeal.

Come and browse the shelves to find a special gift for someone or a gripping read for the long nights. All proceeds from the book shop go towards our conservation projects at Croft and we're always pleased to receive any of your own unwanted books so don't forget to bring those along too when you visit.
