Enjoy a colourful day out

An autumn walk around the gardens and estate is highly recommended. The colours on the trees, the late bloomers in the garden are coming to fruition - it's all happening. 

There are regular guided walks around the garden, or download one for yourself, the choice is yours.

Try geocaching

Be a 21st century pirate and hunt for buried treasure using GPS rather than a map. Borrow our GPS devices to enable you to locate the treasure hidden in our grounds.

Visit the stables

Atmospheric and grand, the Old Stables are well worth a visit! You can see where all the horses would have been kept and paraded in front of any guests at the Hall.

Cosy up in the cafe

The cafe is a little basic but you can still enjoy a fresh brew, soup, cakes, scones, sandwiches or soft drinks. Then work it off in the special Woodland Play Area...
