Built in the early 16th century for Lord Sandys, Henry VIII's Lord Chamberlain, the house acquired a classical portico (the first of its kind) in the mid 17th century and contains a fascinating Tudor chapel with Renaissance glass, a Palladian staircase and a wealth of old panelling and fine furniture. Attractive grounds feature herbaceous borders and a wild garden with lawns, lakes and woodland walks. There is also a newly developed wetlands area.

Two friendly instructors help all ages reach new heights in a oak tree deep in our woodland. They will teach you how to enter a tree's canopy using ropes, knots and karabiners, whilst being securely attached in a harness. Once at the top of the tree you will gain an experience which can't be found on the ground and if you're feeling brave take the zip wire back down! Suitable for ages 6 to 100!

  • 11-13
  • 14-15
  • 16-17

Admission
