Teas/refreshments will be served on all open days from 12 pm to 4.30pm. Teas and cakes are served in the Great Hall Dining Room. In good summer weather, they are served on the Gatehouse lawn.
Please check website before coming as occasional private events/filming may mean the Hall is not open for a house tour.
The fine 12th century Norman church of St Michael, 150 metres from the Hall, is also open every day. The church is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust.
Please note, the narrow lane to Upton Cressett makes the property unsuitable for large coaches.
