The staff at Newburgh Priory are quietly squirreling away prepping for new season opening on the 3rd April. The House & Gardens will re-open for exclusive access days from April - June offering a unique chance to peek inside the family home.
The House over the years has been a hotbed of political shenanigans, with a collection of ceramics and unique family portraits for visitors to view - there's also the addition of the tomb (the alleged final resting place) for the body of Oliver Cromwell - minus his head!
The dog friendly Gardens are perfect for an afternoon stroll offering topiary, views across the Hambledon Hills and historic trees planted by royalty whilst the herbaceous walled garden will have you spotting fruit & veg. Explore the secret water garden - a beautiful series of small lakes interconnected by rockwork, waterfalls, cascades and paths, with a larger lake at the top then head to the Parlour Tearoom to take stock with a brew & slice of cake.
Newburgh Priory still remains a family home so opens for a shorter season which is usually for a 3 month period. The House & Gardens will re-open on the 3rd April - 30th June on Wednesdays and Sundays.
In addition Newburgh Priory will be open on Bank Holiday Mondays 27th May & 26th August.
