This a a fabulous place and my wife and I spent a very pleasant time here. The small collection of steam vehicles, which includes several traction engines, are typically running on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Lovely Elizabethan house and gardens. The gardens were lovely even on a slightly rainy day. The house is very nice with the Elizabethan equivalent of wall paper, selected furniture and art work. The house appears homely as the family still lives there.

I highly recommend a visit here. Although the hall itself is small the rooms are a delight, especially the leather panels on the walls and the beautiful Elizabethan carving around the fire places. My personal favourite however has to be the gardens, a delight and...More

You can buy tickets anytime you like online. They don't need to be printed and so showing them to our ticket kiosk attendant on your phone is totally fine. We look forward to seeing you soon
