Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Whilst our volunteer editors will do their best to ensure our events listings are as up to date and accurate as possible; with the fast pace of how things are changing, it is inevitable that some will slip through the net. If you are planning on travelling for larger events, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly to avoid disappointment. We are putting in place new measures to give event organisers a friendly reminder to see if they wish to remove cancelled events, so we're sorry if it looks a bit bare in here :(

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for free, professional advice.

We will be taking special measures to help ensure the safety of our visitors. Hand gel will be available at the entrance to the house and next to the tea rooms. Social distancing measures will be in place and entry into the house will be at 10 minute intervals per visiting group (e.g. family groups, relatives etc..) and a one way system will be in place to assist with social distancing.

Face coverings will be required in the house and other enclosed spaces and anyone without a face covering will not be allowed into these areas, apart from those who are exempt. Face masks will be on sale at £1 each if needed.

We will have a contactless payment system and will be able to take cash only with the exact money as we are unable to give change due to restrictions on handling cash.

Gardens and Stables:
Unfortunately because of COVID we are not able to open the fort or the tree house this year and we are unable to offer pony rides, however the grounds are available to enjoy.

No dogs apart from guide dogs as there are animals in the grounds.
