  • We visited the barns for a Halloween event - it was fantastic. £8 admission for the little one, we were both free. The staff and entertainment were fantastic. Story telling, puppet theatre, live music, treasure hunts, face painting.... all for free (after the admission price). The gardens are immaculately kept and the barns are lovely (and extremely old)! We can't wait until our next visit!
  • The place itself is interesting due to the two well-preserved thirteenth century barns and the knowledgeable guides who will tell you about the history of the site. However, the most interesting thing to do is come here for one of their events — a wide range of activities from mediaeval reenactments and craft fairs to courses on everything from picture framing to clay oven making. Check their website for details of what is going on.
  • Just down the road from us, we are so lucky to have such a great local asset. Free entry, lovely Tiptree teashop, beautiful walled garden and relaxing setting.
  • Great to get up close to local history. Amazing these are still standing. Museum display in the big barn is really good - don't be misled by the 2 display cases in the granary, go over to the much better display in the big barn. My one quibble would be that there should be a proper guide book for sale in the visitor centre. There was something in the well house, but this is too late.
  • I cannot believe I have lived so close, but never visited before now. Beautiful gardens, well restored and so interesting buildings with clear and instructive inormation boards and displays. On top of that the Tea rooms are bright and airy, the menu good and the food fantastic
