When visiting, you will also be able to explore the garden and woodland trail,

as well as browse the gallery/gift shop which is situated in the front entrance hall.  

Other important information:  Parking is available on the main drive, with disabled parking spaces at the front of the house.  Disabled access to the house is limited for wheelchair users due to the number of steps and period features of the house.

Sadly, no dogs (except guide dogs) are allowed in the garden or house.
