The Servants' Quarters are open to the public


This is a chance to see a part of the Mansion that is not normally open to the public.

Throughout most of the open season, we cannot open the North Range to the public as it is the home of the Mansion's Greater and Lesser Horseshoe bat colonies. However, the bats leave the Mansion for their winter hibernation during September and we take this opportunity to open that area to our visitors.

We regret that we are not able to admit visitors to the Brewery at present as we are awaiting a report from our Structural Engineer on potential problems in that area. However, we will be opening the Servants' Quarters so that you will be able to see where William Leigh's family servants would have lived and, where, we believe, Vincent Leigh lived during the time leading up to the 1922 sale of the estate.
