Christmas and New Year Opening Hours

The Walled Garden, The Orangery, and Hibiscus will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day but will otherwise remain open during Christmas and New Year. Please see below for full opening hours.

Our new deli, Common Ground, and second-hand bookshop will be closed on Christmas Day, Monday 28th December, and New Year’s Day.

We’re currently closed for general admission. The house will reopen for Stories of Christmas from Monday 28th until Thursday 31st December. It’s timed entry from 11am and you can book tickets here. 

The house will then close from 1st January until 15th February for admissions whilst maintenance work takes place. Common Ground, our second-hand Bookshop, The Orangery, and Hibiscus will remain open to the public during this time.

Maintaining a historic building is hugely important and rewarding so we’re looking forward to completing the clean of the house and having it ready for everyone when we reopen in time for February Half Term.
