50 Things and Summer fun

The house is open daily, 10.30am-5.30pm (last entry 5pm).

This Summer, set up a snail race, hunt for bugs, make a home for a wild animal or create wild art all as part of 50 Things to do before you're 11 and 3/4. Don't forget, you can pick up your free 50 Things scrapbook here to start collecting stickers!

Feeling crafty? Then why noy try your hand at the original form of up-cycling in our rag rugging workshop. Deborah Hastings and the rag rug volunteers will show you how to re-use recycled materials to make soft furnishings for the home.

Join us for Peg Pirates and make your own crew mate to accompany you on your entrepid adventures around the Cornish coast. Arrrrrrggggghh!
