Book House Tour


“Just visited Hellens, had an amazing guided tour of the house. The history of the house is fascinating, the collection of paintings are stunning and our guide was very knowledgeable. The weather was lovely so we were able to stroll around the grounds after tea and scones in the Tea Rooms. Will definitely be back.” 


“Great place to visit. We felt so welcome and there is a very generous spirit about everyone we met from The Manor. It has such a history and the story was told so well on our tour which felt safe and ordered. History just falls out the walls from so many different periods.”


We want everyone to feel welcome at Hellens and hope that anyone with any specific requirements won’t hesitate to contact us (01531 660504/ so that we can make this possible.

Our Tearoom offers a range of delicious homemade soups, cakes, and scones served with jam and clotted cream as well as quintessentially English crumpets and hot toasted teacakes. We offer a full selection of fine teas and coffee served in an eclectic array of charming porcelain. Cold and hot beverages include bottle green squashes and rich hot chocolates.
