            How You Can Help Us;

On the day of your tour, if you or any of your party, are unwell and present any of the symptoms of Coronavirus, we ask you to please contact us to rebook your visit within the validity of your voucher.

If you have booked using a voucher we ask you please to bring this along with you.

We understand that, in current circumstances, finding child and pet care may be more challenging. However please do not bring children with you as we are controlling numbers on tours. As we are classed as a food production site, dogs are never permitted in our production areas.

We have prided ourselves on being wheelchair friendly and have welcomed many guests over the years with mobility issues. It is an 18th century site with a cobbled courtyard, some ramps and narrow doorways. Often this has required our staff assisting in a hands-on manner. In current circumstances we cannot offer hands on assistance with manoeuvring wheelchairs around the site. If you plan on bringing a wheelchair, we strongly advise that you call our office to discuss your particular circumstances.

We very much look forward to welcoming you for a relaxed and convivial visit.

We would be extremely grateful if you could contact us if you can no longer make this tour. Please email us at or telephone us on 01491 638 330 at your earliest convenience.

Best Wishes ~ Donald Ealand (GM & Family Owner)
