Staying safe

  • If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don’t visit
  • To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. And look out for signs while you’re here which will explain any changes to how you can access different parts of the site.
  • Stay local if you can – some of our houses and gardens remain closed. We are opening up countryside car parks gradually, but many facilities will not yet be open. It's important we don't create hotspots. 
  • Take extra care to respect local residents and other visitors. Please don’t park on roadsides, as this can block essential emergency access. 
  • By sticking to paths, keeping dogs under control, not approaching wildlife and taking any litter home, we can ensure our places benefit both people and nature.
