Step inside this simply furnished, timber-framed cottage and travel back in time. Lived in continually right up until the mid-1980s, today this 16th-century labourer's dwelling has been restored to bring four hundred years of uninterrupted occupation to life. See first-hand the radical changes home life has undergone over the past few centuries, then explore the delightful cottage garden outside.
Please note: Due to Oakhurst's age and fragility, visits are only possible as part of a pre-booked guided tour. We run tours in the afternoon on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays between April and October. Space is very limited, so it is essential you arrange a tour in advance. To book, please phone the Winkworth Arboretum team on 01483 208936 or email us.
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:
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|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|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Entry is as part of a guided tour only. Maximum of 6 people per tour.
Admission by booked guided tour only at 2, 3 and 4 (last tour at 3 in October). Please call Winkworth Arboretum 01483 208936 to book.
