Christmas Craft Fayre 2019

Our famous Christmas Craft Fayre is back this year on Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December. Set to be our biggest Christmas Fayre yet, with more stalls than we’ve ever had before, it’s the perfect event to get your Christmas shopping started and to get into the festive spirit!

New for this year is a marquee that will be over the Coach House Cafe courtyard, incorporating lots of vendors, our Little Gem Shop gift shop, and the Coach House Cafe where you can enjoy some hot mulled wine and a mince pie in between browsing the wonderful array of stalls.

This year parking will be charged at £1 per car and is limited in space, we do politely ask that you be respectful of the grounds and take care when using your vehicle within the estate. There is a number 12 bus stop directly at the top of the driveway and there will be a drop off point for taxis and those providing lifts.

The Lupton Trust is a community project owned and run by the community. Events like this are run entirely by volunteers. Thank you very much for your kindness, patience, understanding & for your support. If you are interested in helping us out and becoming a volunteer for the Lupton Trust, please do get in touch with Janet by emailing

Trial repairs on the Italianate Garden

The Italianate Garden here at Lupton House has undergone some trial repair work!

For more information on the work that has been completed, visit Jonathan Rhind Architects Blog by clicking here.

Jonathan Rhind Architects and William & Burrows Heritage Repairs have been working alongside the Lupton Trust in this Historic England funded project.

“This trial repair work has focused on introducing new stone to replace the heavily eroded original stone and the re-use and salvage of original features.”
