A few things we ask


Dogs are not allowed in the Tudor grounds or inside at the Rhubarb Shed Cafe. We have lots of outdoor space surrounding the Tudor site that is very popular with local dog walkers and they can enjoy an outside visit to the cafe. We are trialling Doggy Days throughout the year when we welcome four legged friends on site. Please see our what’s on page for details of our next open day.


The Tudor grounds are a no smoking area. We kindly ask you to smoke outside of this area by exiting through the Discovery Centre.  We ask that you dispose of any cigarette ends in the bins provided once back on site. 

The Ruins

The ruins are over 450 years old and we want them to be there for many more years to come. We also don’t want any one to hurt themselves. We ask that you do not climb on the ruins but please feel free to touch!

Mind your step
The ground can be uneven across the site due to buried archaeology so please mind your step. The grounds are grassed beyond the Discovery Centre. Access to the first and second floors of the Turret House are via a stone spiral staircase.

Please view our accessibility page for full information

The Tudor stone Turret House stands in grounds covered in meadows. The building is square in shape with three floors, two windows on each. it has a wooden door in the lower right corner and is topped with a rounded turret on the right side. The meadows are pink yellow and white. The sky is blue with white fluffy clouds.
Four children play in a lavender labyrinth. The children are jumping, smiling ad happy. One of them looks at the camera smiling hands raised about to clap. In the background is a Tudor stone wall.
