Really well preserved National Trust property, containing the family's myriad musical instruments, porcelain collection, paintings & furniture. Wonderful views over London from the small upstairs balcony. The walled garden is idyllic, flowers galore, meadow- flower orchard, veg plot, all within a wonderfully maintained walled garden. Walking around Hampstead to come across this gem is uplifting

We really enjoyed our recent visit to Fenton House. The house and gardens were beautiful and the staff were very friendly and informative. A lovely couple of hours spent in leafy Hampstead!

My wife and I visited this house expecting to see some fully furnished rooms of the period and were surprised to find that several rooms were filled with musical instruments. In fact there were several types of harpsichords, spinets, virginals amongst others throughout the house, which although interesting, were not displayed to their best advantage, nor in the right location....

We are NT members and checked their web site for properties that we had not previously visited and found Fenton House. From the moment we saw the walkway through the front garden up to the house we were impressed by it. We had a warm welcome from a helpful volunteer and took a self guided tour of the house and...

We visited this place enroute to a recent stay in London however as strangers to the area we found it difficult to park. We went on a Sunday so local parking restrictions didn't apply but none the less it was hard work. The building had the usual friendly staff who were well informed and helpful and although this place is... More

Went here with a friend had an enjoyable couple of hours walking around the many beautiful rooms within the house. The best part was getting onto the roof area to take in the views of the garden and surrounding land and views over Hampstead. It is a handsome property with delightful gardens, with areas to sit and enjoy the outside... More

Less than 5 minutes' walk from Hampstead tube station, Fenton House is a wonderful find. A treasure trove of porcelain figurines, tea sets and more can be found in each room of the house in addition to a number of harpsichords and other wooden instruments including a hurdygurdy. There is a wonderful view from the top floor over the beautiful... More

So many unique and wondrous stringed instruments in one house and such well manicured and interesting gardens. Well worth the Nat Trust membership fee in itself.

This small house in one of the highest spots in Hampstead really is a joy. Decorated in the 1970s it's really nice and we weren't the only people who said " I could live here". It's a fascinating little place and the porcelain on display is beautiful as are the many harpsichords. If you're really lucky, you may catch a... More
