  • It was a really excellent view of a wealthy Quaker family in abeautiful setting.
  • Very enthusiastic and well informed guides. Very interesting
  • Splendid houses with an adult dressing up box. What more could you want?
  • A wonderful place to visit with amazing features in each of the rooms. Well worth a visit if you are in the area and interested in architecture and history.
  • Very much a work in progress, but well worth the short walk from the Colebrookdale Iron Museum
