This National Trust house has volunteer guides in every room which make a visit here a pleasurable experience so a guide book was not a necessity. The guides enjoyed answering questions and we found it difficult to move on. Restaurant facilities are also good.

Not a huge house by N T standards but a very interesting one, situated behind the Minster, Ghost trip was not scary, and a good story!! make sure you visit the cafe downstairs afterwards.

A very ecletic house and collection created by a very eccentic and wealthy owner and now owned by the National Trust. Has to be seen to be believed. It even has a great ghost story and tour (and a very decent cafe).

Of all the Nationlal Trust places I have visited, the volunteers here were the most helpful and they certainly know their stuff, every quesion answered with great love of the subject. We spent longer here than anticipated. The house itself is attractive and there are some lovey antiques. The previous owners story is interesting. For a small extra fee there... More

The Treasurers House is well worth a visit. I was astonished at the knowledge of the volunteers who were very happy to tell the story of this house and make the visit so interesting and worthwhile. The lady who took us on the Ghost walk below the house was fantastic. Setting the scene for her story by turning off the... More

The house was owned by Frank Green who was a colourful character who was full of surprises, the house is a wonderful example of his vision and travels and the guides are the best we have had to date and knew all the information required so well done to them for learning the subject. We also did the ghost tour... More

There is more to this National Trust property than its name suggests, as it is three houses knocked together into one large space. The history is intriguing, the rooms fine – and left in original condition and content. Particularly impressive are the many fine pieces of furniture, in particular a number of chests. Allow a good hour for the visit:... More

Located behind The Minster, National Trust. Guides are very helpful and knowledgeable. To begin to do it justice allow a couple of hours.

The Nation Trust Volunteers in each room were fantastic giving lots of information and insight into this lovely place. We didnt have time to visit the Ghost Cellar... More

A fascinating house, with incredible history.... With an unexpected extra.... Challenged my perspective re the potential of a spirit world... Was sure there wasn't... Now, I'm honestly not sure........... Not going to spoil the experience, go along and make your own mind up. Very persuasive...
