Welcome to Orchard Side House
Find out here what delights we have in store for you when you visit to relive Georgian life with us in our 18th century town house.
Visit our tranquil & historic Gardens. William Cowper was an innovative gardener at a time when seeds & plants were arriving from North America. Find out more here, including a plan of the gardens and our seasonal photo gallery.
Take an on-line mini tour, right now, around the collection display rooms inside Orchard Side House. Visit the ‘Welcome’ page to see the plan of the House & Gardens and a short guide to the other delights we have in store for you during your visit.
The Twelve Days of Christmas by Colin Veitch is our December exhibition – and depicts the Twelve Days as you’ve never seen them before! Do come along and view Colin’s witty interpretation of this special season (when even Brexit gets a mention!).
Our HLF grant has enabled us to refurbish the historic Viper Barn so that it will soon contain an audio-visual display. We have new lighting and blinds throughout the museum and our Project Manager, Carla Markland, is now turning her attention to the new-look Georgian Life room.
