Don’t forget to visit the Mayflower playground and play trail in the woods, as well as our small animals and Bee Centre.

There is no charge for parking and entry to the Hall & grounds is completely free.   Please be aware that we don’t allow picnics for this reason – our charity relies on the money we make from the delicious food & drink we sell which enables us to keep our doors open for free!
