There are 18 steps up to the front door and please note that Santa’s Grotto takes place on the top/bedroom floor which is upstairs. We hope that this won’t impede your visit but wanted to be sure that visitors know in advance to plan accordingly.

*    Important message re: buggies:  Please note that we cannot allow buggies in Westport House due to the beautiful parquet floors which are antiques in their own right.  We realise this is not ideal and so, we will have a limited number of baby carriers / harnesses on hand for you to borrow for your visit. We highly recommend that you bring your own in case they are all in use.

*    Please note that weather permitting, Winter Wonderland will be open on all the days detailed on our website.
