The site comprises a range of thatched cottages and a Grade II listed 18th century mill house set in 15 acres of spring-fed lakeside gardens. The gardens feature an Italianate rotunda of stone and wrought iron, wooded areas, orchards and a productive kitchen garden. Springhead Trust is a small charity with a mission to encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to experience and value the rural environment, and to learn about the sustainable use of natural resources. Within this remit, the historic house, additional buildings and gardens are currently licensed for weddings. They are also available to hire for educational residential courses and other private events through the year. We also host events, both free and ticketed, and public open days focused on the enjoyment of the arts, music and rural culture.

Opening Arrangements

We are open to the general public free of charge for an average of 15-20 days per annum. In addition, we host ad hoc paid-for ticketed events such as talks and concerts. We are also available for hire all year round for weddings, school residential stays and other private celebrations and group activities.
