Booking your visit to Mr Straw's House

Lavender outside Mr Straw's House

As we are small, yet perfectly formed you will need to book in advance onto one of our tours. Tours run from Tuesday to Saturday during the main season with the first tour starting at 10:30 am.

Tours at Mr Straw's House do fill up quickly due to the small size of each tour (4 people). We would advise you ring as soon as possible to arrange your visit. However, if you want to visit on the day please do call in advance of setting off and we will try and accomodate your booking.
