  • Its a building with no atmosphere . Could talk about the history of all its occupant . Good childrens room to paint & read .  more »

  • Unique place, the ex-home of the founder of the National Trust. It was fire damaged in 2011 and opened to the public in 2012 as a 'work in progress' project. Set in lovely surroundings its a no-frills country house that the very friendly staff invite you to explore at leisure then enjoy a cuppa at the cafe. Very child friendly.
  • National Trust. Grounds are well worth a visit. Challenging small (20 minute) walk behind the house. Colony of Red Squirrels here. Parking extremely limited unless you have a disabled badge (c.300 meter walk to house from Grasmere)
  • Lovely house and you can come and go as you please but not a lot to see. As members we got in for free which was great however this place is in need of a lick of paint just to freshen it up. Staff are friendly and location is amazing
  • Felt very unloved. Odd sort of place and appeared very scruffy. Last given a thorough cleaning years ago I should think. Don't waste the entrance fee.
  • Love it here. Great place to relax without the usual restrictions and red ropes.
