These personal tours include tea and cake at the end and capture a glimpse of life for the family currently living in Scawby Hall. They will take place on 21st May and 4th September at 1 PM and 3 PM and will cost £14 per person. 

There is disabled access to the majority of the ground floor of the house, but the first floor is not accessible.  Please feel free to call the Estate Office with any questions or to discuss any particular needs.​ We regret that dogs are not permitted in Scawby Hall or the Kitchen Garden, except for guide dogs.  

We do not accept credit or debit cards - cash or cheque only please. The nearest place to make cash withdrawals is at Scawby Post Office, and the Lincolnshire Co-op in Scawby also has an ATM.

Aside from the personal Invitation to View tours, Scawby Hall does not serve refreshments, but on all of our open days, Scawby's church, St Hybalds, serves teas, coffees, cakes and other light refreshments.​ For more substantial refreshments and meals the excellent pub in Scawby, The Sutton Arms, is open lunchtimes and evenings.

Private tours are welcome year round by prior appointment. Please contact the Estate Office to arrange.
