Details

During the day (s) before or after an event has taken place, there may be limited access or restricted access to the grounds. This is due to large structures being erected/dismantled across the site and heavy vehicle movement during event set-ups/takedowns. This does not affect the tearoom, which will remain open to the public. All bookings for room hires will still go ahead and will be carefully supervised by site staff.

Please note that on the day of private functions, there will be limited access to the barns/gardens. Please see a full listing on our website or give us a call before you visit to ensure your visit is still pleasurable.

Cressing Temple, between Witham and Braintree, is of supreme interest for its unique buildings and gardens. Given to the Knights Templar in 1137, its Grade I-listed Barley and Wheat Barns, built in the 13th century, are among the oldest timber barns and few surviving Templar buildings in England. Displays inside outline the history of the Templars and the site.

Among Cressing Temple's many gardens, the Walled Garden is faithfully reconstructed as a Tudor pleasure garden - one of few in the country. Cream teas at 'The Barns' Tea Room and picnics in Cressing Temple's gardens are popular.
