2020 Opening Hours

Following the latest government advice on coronavirus, and in response to increasing public health concerns, Milton’s Cottage will no longer re-open for our 2020 season on 1st April, as originally planned.

Our first priority has to be the health and welfare of our wonderful team of volunteers as well as our visitors. As such, we’ll be delaying the opening of Milton’s Cottage, including our literary garden, to help fight the spread of Covid-19 while we continue to listen to government advice.

Our website will include regular updates about our plans for 2020, which will continue to evolve in order to best meet government guidelines and the needs of our visitors.

In the meantime, we will add new content to our website and social media accounts to keep people engaged whilst in social isolation.

We thank everyone for their support and understanding during these exceptional circumstances.

Group Visits

Milton’s Cottage is the perfect destination for a group visit and we are delighted to cater for parties of varying sizes and interests.

So that all of our visitors enjoy the intimate ambience of Milton’s Cottage, we recommend that any groups of 15 or more people book with us in advance.  As Milton’s Cottage is a Grade I listed Elizabethan cottage, with limited space, our maximum group size is 25 people (or up to 50 if the group is able to divide into smaller groups to visit the garden or St. Giles Church).

A visit to Milton’s Cottage usually lasts between 1 – 1.5 hours.  If your group is planning a full day trip to the area, we would be delighted to suggest other local visitor attractions as well as cafes, restaurants and pubs in the village.  We are happy to provide contact details and any other information to help make your group visit a pleasurable one.
