Imagine stepping back 400 years into the home of a 17th century cloth merchant. See the changes that he made and discover why they were sadly never completed. For generations after, the estate was a hive of farming activity producing enough milk, cheese and bread to adequately supply the household and its workers. Saved from demolition in 1933 by two local brothers, the hall was donated to the National Trust in 1934. Today, friendly volunteers bring the house back to life
and share the fascinating stories that have made this special place an award-winning attraction.

Nestled around the lawns, you will discover a selection of fruit trees, fragrant roses and borders of ever-changing colours.

Children can let off steam in the natural play areas and get creative in the outdoor pie kitchen. The hobbit house is waiting to be discovered and there's no better place to spot wildlife than at our bird hide. For those in search of adventure, various trails and dressing up will have young detectives searching high and low for clues.

Refresh your taste buds with a trip to the tea-room and enjoy a hot drink and a delicious slice of cake. Housed in the former bothy, the cosy tea-room retains traditional character and is complete with stone walls and a beautiful beamed roof.

The shop offers a wide range of gifts, souvenirs and plants. It's the perfect place to pick up a treat to take home for yourself or a loved one.
