|Notes||Gardens & Farm Opening:
The gardens and farm are open more often than the house. Usually from 11 - 4pm in early spring and 11 - 5pm at other times. On some days, the estate may close earlier than usual for a function. If it is important to visitors that a particular part should be accessible, please check by telephone before visiting.
The House usually opens one hour after and closes one hour before the advertised opening and closing times for the day. Occasionally, if we have a booking for a wedding, the House may close earlier than at the stated times - please check before your visit to be sure.
During the Great Annual Re-Creation, and some other events, only part of the house is used and the rest is closed.
