On selected days our coal fired stove will be lit and in operation with our kitchen volunteers cooking up something yummy from original Victorian recipes. Try out freshly-made cakes, biscuits and seasonally themed goodies.

Be sure to check our website to find additional dates when the coal range is running during special events and school holiday programmes.

Please check before your visit as the exact days* and times that the coal range will be running are subject to change. Additional charges may apply for some coal range events.

If you would like to join our volunteer team running the coal range, front of house or in the garden then please contact us at Highwic for an informal interview.
