There are only three rooms to see but the house is beautiful and on a nice day the gardens are lovely. The tearoom is really nice with home cooked food a little different to the usual national trust properties - cinnamon swirl, chocolate brioche, delicious...More

One of the smaller National Trust properties, but well worth a visit. A lovely house with an interesting history, and gardens to look at and explore. The original house was built around 1480 but of course has been altered over the years. The house is...More

Visited on bank holiday Monday with my son and family and my dog. Lovely small humble dwelling with lovely atmosphere, a nice change from most rather grand houses. Great cakes and quiches and coffee which we enjoyed in the garden, felt I had stepped back...More

A little gem in the countryside. A shame that it has restricted opening times. The guides were excellent with a thorough knowledge of the property and were happy to answer our questions. The small cafe, with seating both inside and outside in the pretty garden,...More

Little hidden away gem of a place...as tenanted, not all of the house is accessible, but what is, is interesting and the garden is beautiful...cafe has some wonderful vegetarian choices, plus cakes and bread..will definitely head back to see the garden in Springtime.

A little gem run by the lovely couple who are the tenants. Delicious food, pretty garden and a very friendly atmosphere. It is a bit out in the sticks and not easy to find. As is often the case with National Trust properties, it is...More
