Had a really great afternoon at Hellens with my parents. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He was actually a real credit to Hellens and enhanced the whole experience. The Jacobean Manor House is a real find and the jewel in the crown. As a visitor, you get a lot of opportunity to walk around the house and... More

lovely setting. have been to several events at Hellens and couldn't wish for a nicer setting. Staff helpful and the garden show was far better than the large shows around the area. Well run and lots of interest.

You're taken round this family home by a knowledgable and friendly tour guide (we visited on Father's Day). It was so pretty and although I don't particularly like guided tours, this one was interesting and thoughtful. The best bit however, that the family were 'in residence'. Their children were running around playing hide and seek and the adults were mooching... More

Following a stroll around the lovely garden, we were given a tour of the manor house by a very knowledgeable guide. Each room is rich with history, which the guide brought to life really well. In contrast to National Trust properties you are encouraged to sit down on the furniture and have a good look around the rooms, and this... More

What a gem. Family still live here and their guides are so knowledgeable. You won't believe the artwork housed in this beautiful old house. An absolute must do, better than your average National Trust property.

Hellens is a jewel of a country house!! It is still lived in by the present owners, but open for all of us to enjoy. Be it a gided tour, a concert in their concert hall, a wedding reception, or just a family gathering. I do like visiting Hellens as often as I can.

Visited last summer with my three young children. I found the tour a little disappointing - the guide (who I understand has now retired) spoke only of the artwork in every room. Given that our tour group consisted mainly of young children, I felt he could perhaps have spoken a little about the history of the house and its occupants,... More

Found this almost by accident and it was well worth the detour. A fascinating house, still lived in and full of interesting items. The guided tour was very informative but not a bit dull, enlivened with all sorts of facts not usually found in a guide book. If you are a member of the Historic Houses Association Hellens is a...
