Hello Heritage Open Day at the 1620s Site

As part of the successful Hello Heritage season we are waiving the admission fee for visitors to explore the house, gardens and tea room for today.  If you are local come and see what a wonderful site is on your doorstep,  meet the members of our wonderful team who will show you around the house, explore the beautiful gardens and try the amazing cake in our tea room.

Please note that there will be an uplifting event with music and talks in and around the barn tea room in the afternoon as part of  the You’ve Got a Friend Project, raising awareness of mental health issues and of the risk of suicide.
