Sunnycroft in 2022

Sunnycroft sits at the heart of the local community. During the year we’ll be trialling and testing a new way of working which focuses on the local community.

During the year we’re trialling and testing a new way of working which focuses on the local community.

We hope that Sunnycroft will become a place that is recognised and loved locally.  Through building relationships with local community groups and organisations we hope to play a bigger part in our local area and help provide a service to groups that may benefit from access to this special place.

We will continually evaluate this new approach to help Sunnycroft evolve into a place to be, a place to do and a place to connect, for both our supporters and local communities.

Visiting Sunnycroft 

Sunnycroft is open on selected dates throughout the year, giving supporters a chance to enjoy exploring the house and grounds.

The next open-weekend takes place Friday 9 – Sunday 11 September 2022 (11am to 4pm last entry 3pm).  Visits are on a pre-booked basis via the website.

Entry for National Trust members is free and non-member prices are £8.00 for an adult (see prices page for full details).

We are also planning visitor events at key times of the year including a new Christmas offer.

When Sunnycroft is open:

Parking

If arriving by car, please follow the direction from our team to park up in our car park. There are designated Blue Badge spaces available close to the house at Sunnycroft, please speak to the team on arrival. If you are arriving in a vehicle larger than a car e.g a campervan please note that there are a limited number of spaces for large vehicles due to the size and layout of the car park, and we may not be able to accomodate your vehicle. We are unable to welcome caravans and coaches.

Tickets and membership cards will be checked at the Welcome Hut.

Dogs

Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome to visit the garden at Sunnycroft with their owners. The garden at Sunnycroft is only around five acres in size, and as one of the smaller National Trust properties is more of a place for your dog to accompany you on a visit than as a place for dog walking. 

We ask that:

  • Dog poo must be picked up and taken home with you
  • Dogs must remain on leads in all areas of the garden
