  • A beautiful hidden gem. The small red door will make you doubt you're in the right place, but just push the door open and walk down the stairs. A small yet beautiful house. Shame only a small portion of the original garden remains though
  • A well conserved hidden gem. The staff greeted us when we entered this free museum to give us something to read about the building and the lifestyle of the house back in the days. Nice and quiet little garden and great collection of paintings! Would highly recommend!
  • Small but very interesting wood panelling. Room guide extremely knowledgeable.
  • Free guided tour by a Elizabethan-era servant dressed woman. Oldest remained architecture of the era in West country. Great and informative visit.
  • Really great free attraction in the centre of Bristol. Staff are friendly and welcomed me as soon as I entered offering a guide to walk around the house with. The oak paneled rooms have to be seen to be believed as there is nothing else like it. Felt more information could have been provided as an option for those who love knowing the history of objects and what were in the rooms that were out of bounds to the public.
