  • Gem of a building in the shadows of York Minster. The beautiful peaceful garden is immaculately kept and has a variety of flowering plants.  more »
  • And if you had the money you could do anything, so he did! A great antidote to the reverence often shown in conservation and restoration...and the garden is equally delightful  more »
  • Very interesting house with a good 'ghost story' in the cellar (excellent story-teller). Nice trails for children to follow with sticker rewards  more »

  • Lovely old house full of Frank Green's interesting collection of antiques. We enjoyed the house and it's contents very much however the experience was somewhat spoiled by staff who had obviously been instructed to buttonhole visitors entering each room and deliver a rehearsed speech. I also disliked the gimmicky and misleading presentation of Frank Green's restoration as a 'creation'; as though it had never really existed as a house. Not sure of the point of this. The perspex boxes of coloured counters and the scattered bits of Lego seemed out of place and pointless; Is this an attempt to make it more accessible and visitor friendly? It has the the opposite effect and spoils the mood of the house.
  • It's an interesting house but I'm afraid it's been priced far too highly. We were offered a cellar tour for an extra four pounds each which consisted of walking down into a single small room whilst someone told us an old ghost story that has been doing the rounds for about 50 years. Very hard sell on the national trust membership also. Ask once, if the answer is no then that's it. To keep asking is rude and embarrassing.
  • A lovely historic building. They offer to store bags etc whilst you look around. Limited opening hours was main drawback for me and the cafe was heaving. Some room stewards almost force you to listen to thier spiel, very well presented by them and in friendly way. They know the history of the building but didn't feel able to just take time to look in some rooms. However it was a most enjoyable visit.
  • Very interesting building well worth visiting. The staff are very friendly & knowledgeable.
  • A lovely house that is much recommended. It's a worthwhile visit, plus the garden is free access to the public.
