  • Worth a visit if NT members. We weren't planning to stop but were glad we did. Interesting house & learning about the family. Nice gardens to walk around.  more »
  • We were very impressed with the house, as unlike many NT houses it was more like as home you could move straight into. The history of the place and Lord Nuffields lack of ostentation wa refreshing. Th...  more »
  • This was like stepping back in time to my Grandparents home. The NT have done a great job of preserving this modest home and collection. Watch the till prices in the cafe ... we were charged £4.50 for...  more »

  • We had a perfect day for wandering around the house and gardens. Not a huge place so quite easy to do in about 1-2 hours. Definitely worth a visit to learn about the remarkable man behind the Morris Minor and his astounding generosity. I would recommend listening to the introductory guide, she was incredibly well informed and quite whimsical! Plenty of outdoor seating for the teashop but get there early as they ran out of Earl Grey! Good gift shop too with done excellent covers of the Morris Owners magazine - if I had space to hang them, I would have bought the set.
  • A hidden gem. It's relatively new to the National Trust and they have little funding for upkeep. But walking around you feel like the owners will be home any minute. The gardens are beautiful and the history is really interesting.
  • One of the most interesting NT properties, you feel very close to William Morris, who was a first class innovator but chose to live very simply. The house feels as if he might come back anytime. I love visiting it.
  • A smaller National Trust property was ideal for our stopover. All the volunteers were happy to share their knowledge. All the amenities were well appointed. Long chat in the gift shop about cars, if course.
  • A lovely insight into the house and life of 20th century industrialist, William Morris, the man who founded MG cars. Small house, and far more modern than many National Trust properties, yet at least as interesting. Plenty of gardens to enjoy and explore alongside the house.
