We loved it but the rain was so heavy we could not visit the garden. Very helpful staff who were very knowledgeable about the house.

It was interesting to see the first house that the National Trust purchased in 1896 as we have been members for a long time. The Church decided to demolish the house which had been split into two houses. A lady who had lived there all her life and was in her 80s pleaded to be allowed to stay until she... More

Great history & lovely location. This is the very first property ever obtained by the Natioanl Trust. IT was a total wreck when they bought it for £10 in the 1800s but now it is really fascinating.

Well worth a wander around for an hour and gorgeous gardens. The old part of the house is particularly stunning.

I've been a NT member for almost twenty years now, but this weekend I paid my first visit to the first property the trust visited. Its a small house which is incredibly pretty, although there is little inside apart from the shell, which gives visitors the opportunity to see what a dwelling such as this would have been like to...

The house is fascinating if small, gardens are lovely. Unfortunately the volunteers were the over enthusiastic, over the top type so typical of some National Trust properties.

Only good value if you already belong to the National Trust! Not much to see and the upstairs was closed. Gardens were only ok and not worth looking at if it's a cloudy or wet day. I would not recommend it for families and would think twice if I had to pay for entry.
