You can visit the garden, parkland, café, shop and book barn. Read this article to find everything you need to know about what is open and what you can expect from your visit. We look forward to welcoming you.

What's open

The garden, parkland and toilets are open daily from 10am to 5pm. Strode Café closes slightly earlier at  4.45pm and shop opens a little later at 11am.

The second-hand book barn is also open every day from 11am to 4pm. Book donations are by appointment only.  

The house is closed. Weather conditions caused damage to part of the roof in recent years. Scaffolding has been erected around some of Court House to allow engineering and ecological surveys to be carried out.
