There are public rights of way across the estate, and we ask that you keep dogs on leads and follow the Countryside Code at all times:

  • Respect other people
  • Protect the environment
  • Enjoy the countryside

Cycling at Claydon Estate

The National Cycle Network route 51 goes past our main entrance and cyclists often find the Phoenix Kitchen to be a welcome stop off, enjoying something to eat and drink before heading off on their ride.

Something for Little Explorers at Claydon Estate!

If you’re visiting with young children, there’s plenty of open space at Claydon Courtyard and the Phoenix Kitchen offers a children’s menu, plus we have an activity sheet you may like to download here and bring with you (please remember to bring crayons!) Also, there’s Florence Nightingale’s carriage and a lovely old fire engine to discover…

Claydon Estate gardens and parkland are available for private hire and events, and are not open to the public. Areas of the former estate gardens are now run by the National Trust, so you may enjoy them when you visit Claydon House.

The National Trust Claydon House and gardens are closed this year, and will remain closed until further notice. Visit the National Trust website for updates.
