Details

Would you like to experience the morning ritual of opening up this 400 year old house? Join us for a true behind the scenes look. This experience would make the perfect gift.

You will be welcomed into the house by the conservation team and be given the opportunity to view the house before it's open to the public.

Discover why we choose to flood certain rooms with light and leave others cloaked in more subdued shades of darkness.

Understand how we balance the conservation needs and visitor experience of this listed building.

A light breakfast with the house steward is included.

Booking essential max 10 people.
