Meet up with family or friends and enjoy a Christmas lunch in our Mulberry tea room.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

This December we're offering the chance to book a table for a weekday 2-course Christmas lunch in our Mulberry Tea Room. Reserve your table for family or friends to get together and start the festive season and then enjoy a stroll around the house to see the Christmas decorations or enjoy the beauty of the winter garden. Round off your festive experience with a spot of Christmas shopping in the Oast Gift Shop.

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
