Sunday 11 Feb is the first Sunday this year it will be open, from 11am to 4pm (House, Gardens, Tea Room and Gift shop)Check the National Trust Website for more information? It’s a nice place to visit but would take no longer than an hour see it all.

Two local restaurants are the Rufford Arms and Hesketh Arms.
