What’s open 

You can visit us Monday to Sunday, from 10am until 5pm. You’ll be able to enjoy the park walks, garden and the children's adventure area all the time. The toilet facilities in the cobbled courtyard will also be open every day.

Our Kitchen Café remains open seven days a week whilst our Coach House Café is open at weekends and bank holidays. You can still enjoy snacks, fresh cakes and bakes, hot sausage rolls, pasties and panini sandwiches and a full range of hot and cold drinks. You're very welcome to bring your own food in the form of a picnic but we'd kindly ask that you take as much of your litter home with you as possible.

Our house is now closed for Winter, reopening on Sunday 6 March.
