Mrs Wolfe's Recipes

Join us as we recreate some of Mrs Wolfe's eighteenth century recipes such as lemon drops, King or Queen cakes or macaroons. Tastings available.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Mrs Wolfe kept plenty of recipes from cakes and bakes to even medicinal drinks and ointments. Every Sunday the kitchen gives off wonderful aromas as a volunteer brings to life these Georgian recipes for you to try.

We've tweaked the recipes slightly from their eighteenth century origins and introduced similar modern ingredients where possible. Please check with the volunteer for any allergy requirements.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
