The Banqueting House Today

The Ruin – open day
Free Public Open Days at the historic property The Ruin on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2019. This will be a chance for the public to see inside this property which has been restored by The Landmark Trust.

The Woodland Trust will be leading free guided walks around Hackfall on both days at 11am and 2pm. Booking recommended, tickets can be booked at Woodland Trust Events. Please note the walk is on a steep woodland path and walking boots or shoes will be needed.


The Landmark Trust now let out what they call “The Ruin” as a holiday cottage for two. The three rooms do not inter connect, so you have to go outside to get to your bedroom. Details are available from The Landmark Trust

You need to be aware though that the Ruin was renovated with the help of public money and you will have to share that view with the public. People can enjoy the view from the terrace between 11am and 3pm each day but in reality the numbers are very small and most days no one will be there to disturb your tranquillity.
