  • Little lovely museum in beautiful English countryside with exceptional tea room.
  • We call here on one of our walks, always friendy and helpful, Cafe' run by volunteers and very handy for a cup of tea & a sarnie!
  • The admission is quite expensive although the garden cafĂ© is very pleasant.
  • Single room, not much to see, but the context of living next to a railway line was interesting. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the walk from the car park along the old railway line next to the river was pleasant.
  • Small, but fascinating NT cottage. Pleasant attached tearoom.
