All the profits from the sale of items from our gift shop's help support the work of the library and the estate.
Our products are locally sourced where possible: we also stock honey and beeswax from the bees on the estate, and locally produced crafts.

We receive no government support and rely on people's personal generosity to help us add to the collection, maintain the house and its contents and develop and work the estate. In addition, your help enables us to develop our education programme and ensure that the collection is accessible to all.
