We are open throughout the year, but from March 31st to October 27th you can enjoy a light lunch, homemade cakes and temptingly delicious cream teas from our tearoom during your visit. Discover outstanding parkland and explore winding pathways, majestic terraces and beautiful woodland. Wonder through ancient speicimen trees along tranquil paths. Terraced walks showcase stunning parkland views whilst follies, temples and statues all built by different generations over the years and maintained to this day adorn the vistas. Stroll by the river to the Ugley bridge and Satyrs' Tempole then climb to the hilltop Sham Castle giving panoramic views to Exmoor, Dartmoor and beyond. Youngsters and four legged friends on leads are welcome to explore the vast acreage. Younger visitors can be directed to Tanglewood Tree for an exhilarating climb on one of the oldest trees in the garden. An ideal location to bring the family for a picnic, let the children run free, explore and learn in a safe environment.

We are open throughout the year from 11am Until 5pm March to October and 4pm November to March; we are closed on Saturdays.
