There's also our October half term Halloween fun to look forward to, with witch school, pumpkin carving and a horrible trail.

Afternoon tea

Enjoy our afternoon tea experience for a special occasion or a treat as part of your visit, with heavenly fancies and indulgent homemade cakes.

This year tea is served all afternoon from midday until 4.15pm.

Talks and tours

Take part in a free daily walk or talk with one of our highly knowledgeable guides.

Learn more about your chosen interest either in the house, the gardens, aviary or wine cellars, available from March to October.

Autumn picnics

Enjoy an autumnal picnic in the gardens

Whether you'd like to be near the woodland playground or looking for a spot with a view, we've got the perfect facilities for a picnic.

Pack your picnic hamper, or grab a bite from one of our food-to-go outlets for some al fresco dining.

Family fun

Have fun outdoors

There's plenty of space to play, run around and lots of trees to play hide and seek behind.

We've got lots of fun things for families to do together such as follow one of our seasonal trails or grab a bite to eat in our family-friendly cafes.

Great British Walk

Enjoy getting out in the fresh air with a Great British Walk, choose from a more strenuous walk taking in the wider estate, a gentle walk through the woodlands or a shorter walk around the formal Gardens.
