  • Lovely building if you like history. Some parts are dark and like going back in time. Once you go upstairs and start making your way down look opposite on the staircase. The steps in the wall are not obvious. Either many are scared to tackle them or they just miss the steps in the wall. The balcony gives a great view. We bought postcards in the shop and were offered a selection of old post office rubber stamp marks for effect. Lovely touch. The garden is delightful with sections and pathways.
  • Nice old building. Staff so nice friendly.
  • Centrally located along the main road, this very antique building is managed by the National Trust. Featuring a rich collection of furniture with detailled descriptions of each of them, the building structure shows the signs of its evolution already from outside, where the heavy weight of the roof gas deformed it's shape during the centuries: the original, medieval one was a lighter thatched one. By entering it the visitors is plunges in the past, the eyes captured by the interiors and many objects in it. Charming and beautiful, it's definitely worth a visit. The ancient little Post Office inside della lovely and unique souvenirs.
  • Well worth the visit. An interesting building with a lovely garden.
  • Always nice to look around the place kids loved all the old stuff
