Planning your visit
There are no bright lights and labels here - part of the magic lies in happening across unlikely treasures in dark corners, finding glinting clocks next to Japanese masks next to ancient bagpipes. Our room guides are there to help with answers to questions and wind up torches.
Timed tickets for the Manor
Entry to the Manor is by timed ticket: the rooms are small and packed full of treasures, and we’d like you to enjoy them without feeling crowded. You can pick up your ticket when you arrive at reception. Tickets are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. They may sell out from early afternoon during school holidays and at weekends and are likely to sell out from lunchtime on Bank Holidays. There may be a wait to enter the Manor on busy days but there is plenty to explore first in the Priest's House, Garden and Turquoise Cellar.
Parking and buggy transfer
We have designated disabled parking in the main car park. The Manor and Garden are a 500-yard hilly walk from reception, shop and restaurant. There are volunteer-driven buggy shuttles around the site by request on every open day.
Two manual wheelchairs are available for loan from reception - these can transported around the site on the buggy.
Steps and paths
