  • Most National Trust properties have a do not touch and do not sit policy, to preserve the original furniture, but not Max Gate! Here you can sit in a comfy chair right next to the fire and read Hardy as must have been done countless times before in this room. If that bores you, head to his third study and sit at the desk overlooking the garden and write some poetry in the very room he did. Take your time, and check out the garden and it's woollen occupants.
  • Very interesting lovely garden
