Our grounds

Our beautiful, landscaped grounds offer a range of tranquil spaces for private hire. A large, paved area with café seating stretches from our main entrance towards two adjoining lakes with fountain and weir features: these are home to our families of swans and other wildfowl.

Away from the entrance lies a large, flat grassed area (the Pocket Park) containing outdoor seating for picnics and relaxation. This site can accommodate a marquee.
