Café with Terrace
The Garden Room café serves delicious homemade and locally sourced lunches, cream teas and cakes. Refreshments can be enjoyed inside the Garden Room, on the shaded courtyard or under parasols along the back terrace with its beautiful views of the garden and ponds.
The Café is within the gardens and is exclusively for use of garden visitors. It is not open to those without a garden entry ticket.

The shop is renowned for its enticing selection of gifts – from handbags to candles, hand painted ceramics to local honey – there is something for everyone.

There is ample free parking for cars, and a separate coach park.
Picnics may be taken in the Car Park field, with a marvellous view of the front façade of the House and surrounding hills, where there are some tables and benches. We regret picnics may not be taken in the Gardens. Please ensure that all litter is taken away with you.
Dogs are not allowed in the Gardens (with the exception of assistance dogs), but they may be walked in the Car Park field.
Disabled visitors are made most welcome. The gardens are only partially accessible – the formal gardens, terrace, gift shop and cafe are all accessible but the steeper gravel paths towards the woodland and behind the ponds are difficult to navigate. Due to the sloping nature of the garden, and the gravel/grass paths throughout, motorised wheelchairs are advised or a strong person to push!
We advise you to telephone before visiting so that we may give you full details of access to ensure a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience. For groups of disabled visitors we recommend each disabled visitor brings a companion as distances within the garden can be tiring. We have two wheelchairs (non-motorised) which we loan (they must be pre-booked).
We also have special lavatory facilities. Disabled Parking is at the bottom of the main car park field – right next to the entrance to the gardens. On rare occasions, if poor field conditions make parking here impractical, signs will direct you to the front of the main house.
