  • 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 »

  • A friend of ours told us about this p;ace and we visited it today. What a delight, it is an intriguing house, beautifully set out with plenty of very knowledgeable attendants who are so happy to give more information. The grounds are stunning, beautifully set out and fully of nooks and crannies to intrigue and surprise you. I read with astonishment a poor review of the tea room. I don't know how that person came to that conclusion! Afternoon tea consisting of tea, sandwiches and cake for two people at £14.95 seemed very reasonable, of course you can by just a hot drink for the normal high street prices, and there are slice of cake at normal prices. If I had any criticism of the tea room it was that service was rather slow, but as we weren't in a hurry in didn't impact on us. I doubt you would have as good a tea in the centre of Oxford for the price, never mind the centre of London!! I loved the place and can't wait to go again. I shall recommend it to all our friends.
  • The house and grounds are lovely. Its particularly interesting to see first hand this important part of British industrial and economic history. The cafe is not up to the usual standards of NT. Our coffees were served barely warm.
  • Extremely interesting National Trust property. Make sure you have the guided tour in the morning as you learn a lot more about Lord Nuffields life. At 1pm the house is open without the tour, so go round again as more rooms are available to see at your leisure.
  • Interesting visit to well-preserved home of Lord Nuffield. Very poor cafe with nothing to offer but drinks, fruit and crisps. Large rock garden if you like such things!!
  • Interesting and historical National Trust house with connections to British I dustrial history. The cafe is not up to the usual NT standards.
