We continue to monitor government guidance and the Estate is open to enjoy exercising using social distancing – please stay at least 2 metres apart.

The main gates and car parks are open, with all Pay & Display machines now operating card only payments (no cash).

To help stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health in our community, we have closed:

  • Our toilet facilities
  • Spurrier’s Play Park
  • All catering operations
  • The Dog Wash facility, Gallery Upstairs, Upton House and our Walled Garden and Borders

All events across the Country Park and Upton House are cancelled until 31st May 2020. Larger events where possible will be postponed until later in the year – we ask for queries to be directed towards Event Organisers through their websites and Facebook Pages:

Please follow the NHS guidelines around preventing the spread of COVID-19 – we are continuing to promote good hygiene and our teams are being extra vigilant.

If you have a fever or persistent new cough we ask that you delay your visit.
