Welcome to our brand new venue in the heart of Nottinghamshire for 2021

The park landscape dates from the 17th Century with later improvements by Humphrey Repton and William Nesfield, who were responsible for most of the mature landscape on the estate today.

The thriving Courtyard is home to the cafe, workshops, shops, and military museum.

We are really looking forward to our first visits to the beautiful venue this summer. We hope you will join us there.

Sorry but our planned spring plant fair had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.
