Coaches can be accommodated in our car park, but it may be easier for the larger vehicles to drop off and pick up outside the house
Reputedly the largest thatched manor house in the country, the House was built to a traditional H plan in 1611. It is a very rare example of a composite structure, featuring a wooden frame encased in brick.
The Ground floor and first floor rooms feature design interventions from Georgian through to Victorian times, whilst the attic floor is virtually untouched since 1611.
Group visits can be given a guided tour of the house. Some rooms are furnished, whilst many feature the design, build and decoration of the period determined from the extensive refurbishment completed in 2006. Self-guided tours are also available.The Hackett Barn rural life museum has an extensive range of artefacts showing rural Lincolnshire life over the last centuries. Our enthusiastic volunteer guides,some of whom used the equipment during their working lives, can explain how the equipment was used.
The walled garden (about one acre), although not extensive, was awarded the Judges Prize in the East Midlands section of the Britain in Bloom competition, and features Heritage varieties of Apple and a local species of garden pea, not commercially available, as well as flower and herb borders. Finally our tea room service can provide light refreshments and / or light lunches for groups if pre-booked.
