Dolphin Curtains

This year we are raising funds to replace the beautifully designed, dolphin print curtains which have been hanging in the Ship Bedroom’s bathroom since 1930.

Decades of opening and drawing the curtains as well as direct sunlight exposure have caused significant deterioration to the cotton fabric. In accordance with Lord Fairhaven's wish that we should look after the House and Gardens just as they were when he was alive, the curtains are now too far beyond repair and should be replaced.

We plan to use our proceeds from this year’s NT Special Places raffle to help fund this and other conservation projects. Tickets cost £1 and you could win a whopping £10,000.

Tickets are on sale from now until 5th November 2018 and can be purchased from the Visitor Centre or from ticket sellers around the property on certain days.

The draw will be held on Friday 23rd November 2018.

Good luck & thank you for your support.
