  • Lovely place. While it may only be a very small NT property, it is still a great place to visit - plenty to do, very friendly and helpful Staff/Volunteers, and very interesting to see how they used to live. We spent about an hour and a half there, a lot of which playing some of the old, Tudor games - especially Nine Men's Morris!
  • Brilliant visit to the house last week with 8 friends. Loved all the information and stories. Thank you in particular to Viv, Alex and Isla for making our visit so memorable. Thoroughly recommend for all ages.
  • Almost everything can be touched and used. The staff were very engaging. Almost didn't need the info sheet given out. Interesting to see how people lived back in tudor times. Don't forget to pop out into the garden.
