and Visits

Schools, colleges, scouts, guides, local groups and societies are all welcome to explore the delightful Tower house and gardens.

Built as a stone tower in the 1400’s, this ancient house was a family home for 500 years.  A visit here will give school groups an insight into how those people lived their lives, long ago.  We offer a range of activities for school groups, which can use both the house and its gardens and woodland.

Our staff know that all classes differ in their needs and abilities and are happy to tailor a session to your particular class.

For more information about educational visits, please e-mail the education coordinator at or visit the Simply Schools website
