The 2019 Season will start on 20th April and we will be open every Saturday until 28th September. There will be two further events: 26th October for Halloween and 14th December for Christmas. 

The Yard will open at 11am each Saturday and close at 3pm. 

There will be live demonstrations by the blacksmith and wood turners working in the yard each Saturday. 

For the children there is the Mouse Trail - find the mice hiding in the yard and get a prize when you have discovered their names. It is fun for the parents as well. 

Come along and join a guided tour or explore at your own pace. 

Be sure to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and soak up the peaceful atmosphere in our café, where light refreshments are available and watch the wildlife around the garden.

If you want a more substantial meal after your visit then contact the Stag’s Head in Chestnut Square, they offer a wide range of good food.
