Having moved in during September 2014 Richard and Naomi are proud to be the next generation of custodians for such a beautiful historic house. They met in London and married at Levens in 2013 before taking over from Hal and Susan, Richard's parents.

For the 2015 season a new guide book was designed and produced, house information and picture labels were updated and a Wellington trail was established in the house to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.  A Creepy Crawly Corner was installed in the old Smokehouse next to the play area - a fantastic interactive space for children which helps them to learn about the insects and animals that live in the garden.

Over the coming years Richard and Naomi hope to be able to add real value to the estate by making some exciting changes, whilst maintaining the core characteristics that have developed over hundreds of years. They hope that their strong feelings of affection for this unique piece of our nation’s heritage will ensure that the Bagot family continues to live here for many years to come.

The Topiary is mostly abstract or geometric shapes but look out for the Chess pieces - King and Queen, the Judges Wig, the Howard Lion, the Great Umbrellas, Queen Elizabeth and her Maids of Honour, a Jug of Morocco Ale and four Peacocks.
