We were severely hit by the storms in early December which brought down well over 60 trees either in the grounds or the woodland. Water Park staff worked hard for many days so we could have groups onsite safely. Clearing the rest of the grounds will be an ongoing mission throughout the year.

New carpets have been fitted in the orangery, corridor and servery area.

Our fire alarm system is due to be upgraded in March.

All staff have completed a fire training and safeguarding course.

  • Autumn building projects completed

    19th October 2018

    Over the early Autumn period we have had the whole of the Coach House building repainted, inside and out.  This now means that over the last three years the whole of the building has now been painted.  In addition, we have had a new heating system installed.  The heaters are electric, but actually look like normal radiators.  It is crucial that clothes are not hung on the heaters as they will cause the heaters to overheat and break down.
