What it's like to work here
This informal, romantic family home flanked by a marvelous Tudor Great Hall is a rare survivor from the 1500’s. History springs to life in the Hesketh family dining room, with its food-
laden table, lit candles and 'fire in the hearth' waiting to welcome the family's dinner guests. Rufford's Victorian and Edwardian gardens are only a few metres above sea level -
making Rufford one of the lowest lying National Trust gardens in England. Our tea room retains many original features including an early 19th century kitchen range.
These rooms are now used to offer a range of light meals, freshly baked scones, drinks and cakes.
