This villa is definitely off the beaten track. I am a wheelchair user and I managed to see most of it . My manual wheelchair does have a battery attachment which was definitely needed when travelling ... read more »
We spent a couple of hours looking at the amazing mosaic floors which have been protected by a new building in recent times. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort.
Truly special Roman mosaics. Tiny museum. Cafe serving sandwiches and drinks. Plenty of picnic facilities. Usual NT shop. Access road is narrow with passing places. Parking best in wood nearby. Bluebell woods surround the site.
It costs 10£ to walk around for 5 mins and look at a few mosaic floor tiles and ornaments. While i do appreciate the roman arts (having visited most of them around Hexham), 5 mintues of it was not enough to justify the price. You might as well just stand outside the entrance and look over the fence, appreciate the view for free and then leave. I would say £2.50 is about right for how short the visit was. Cotswold wildlife costs £15 and you spend all day there (and no i dont work there or am affiliated with the the park in any form)
It's a HUGE Roman villa with beautiful mosaic floors and the remains of two bath houses. It is a little remote but it had a cafe, visitors' centre and a small Victorian museum. One third of the remains are fully excavated and wonderfully presented and explained. One of the best archaeological displays I've seen (and I've seen a LOT ;-)
NT have really made an effort to make this interesting and exciting for all ages. Lovely setting with outdoor and indoor picnic facilities and a nice cafe. There was mosaic making for the children when we visited which was great. Some nice walks start from here. Nice woods if very muddy in wet weather of course. Very friendly helpers. Thanks for a lovely day out.
