The on site Stables cafe serves a good range of meals, snacks and cakes.

Dog Walking

The expansive parkland on the estate is ideal for dog walking so you'll probably see plenty of other owners on your visit. You are asked to keep them on a lead as there are sheep grazing around the estate. The cafe mentioned above is also dog friendly.
Please note only assistance dogs are allowed inside the house itself.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas

Head a few miles east from the house and you'll find more nice walking trails, a Grade I listed hall and another pretty lake at Culverthorpe.
