“Apple Day is our national celebration of our apple orchards and local distinctiveness. Join in the fun. There will be a display and apples for sale. Andrew Tann, who is an authority on apples and grows over 150 varieties of apples in his 15-acre orchard, will be on site to help identify the variety of any mystery apples that you have growing in your garden; bring them along! Visitors are able to explore both the Gardens and parts of the Mansion, including the Stables and cellars, at their leisure. There are no guided tours but Room Stewards will on hand to answer questions in addition to the short Introductory Talks in the hall.
Tea, coffee, home-made cakes and lunches are available, as well as a bar selling alcoholic drinks. Shaw’s barbeque will also be on site. There are stalls, exhibitions, home-made and home-grown produce for sale and a number of musical and children’s events, including a straw castle for children of all ages. The Trust shop will also be open as well as the popular second-hand book stall. The Friends desk will be there to deal with any enquiries on the day. This is a ticketed event but it will be possible to buy tickets at the entrance, but at a higher price than on-line.”
