  • Interesting cottage. Very small so timed ticket entry. Pick up tickets at visitors centre. Reasonable walk along wooded path to reach cottage.
  • Open fire, knowledgeable enthusiastic NT guide, a live fiddle recital and charming garden. We went to Hardys later house Max Gate day before, so was interesting to see his roots.
  • Brill NT property
  • lovely walk
