Discover the story behind Peckover house with options for guided tours or free-flowing visits

There is so much to discover in this unique family home and business and the way that you can view the house is changing for 2024 too...

This season, you won't need to pre-book a tour to look around Peckover House. Instead, you will be able to explore Peckover at your own pace from 11am until 4pm on the days that we are open. Last entry is at 3:30pm.

Where possible, we will also be offering a guided tours experience which will be led by knowledgeable volunteers. When available, guided tours will take place at 11am and 12pm on the days that we are open* and last for an hour.

*Guided tours should be available from mid-May onwards and will be subject to volunteer availability so we can't guarantee that they will run every day. Please do call ahead of your visit to check availability if you'd like to.
