Things to see & do

Places to explore on your guided tour

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

When to visit

Due to the age and size of the cottage, we're only able to open for pre-booked guided tours. Afternoon tours run on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.

Your tour

Every open day you can choose from one of three guided tour times. We highly recommend you pre-book, as there is only room for six people on each tour and spaces can fill up fast.
