The Museum’s 40 acres site, historic gardens and buildings are fascinating places to learn about rural history.

There are a number of lovely woodland trails, including a woodland play area for children to explore.

Our waterside café will be open or visitors can bring a picnic as there are plenty of picnic areas available on site.
