  • So cool! Staff are really nice and full of fun information. It's a cool little secret place in Bristol and a good place to take visitors to the city. Just round the corner from Brandon Hill too so a super cool Bristol tourist day destination!
  • Unless we missed something there really wasn't a lot. Would have been 1 star but the staff were very nice and helpful with the buggy.
  • Fascinating period home - definitely worth a look!
  • Lovely helpful staff. Great place for those interested in local history.
  • 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
