This tour will offer exclusive access to areas not available to the public so you can get a glimpse of what life was like working in an old Manor House.On arrival you will be seated in the Drawing Room with a welcome cup of tea, coffee and cake, while the history of the Manor is explained. Then you will be taken by the servants to explore their world through their daily tasks.The tour lasts approximately one hour and will gain access to the upper floors and cellar and therefore will involve stairs, low ceiling and uneven surfaces. Tickets are only £10 - which includes tea, cake and the immersive tour. Monies generated go towards the ongoing maintenance of the building.
