Visited here yesterday and they had lovely activities for the younger children; medieval jousting which looked like great fun. Well preserved place with a beautiful garden that also backs on to the nature reserve at the back which was lovely and a good safe place to walk. Interesting talk and look around at the history of the house; well researched... More

I used to visit this place with primary school and over the years there are always rumours this place is going to close and that would be a shame. It makes a really unique day out with the family and I would highly recommend putting in the effort to go and visit.

We'd been planning to visit Ford Green Hall for some time and were not disappointed. It is a lovely old building, is well kept and has a very interesting history. It isn't huge so doesn't take long to go round so the kids won't get bored!! Refreshments are available at a reasonableprice. Lots of parking and walking/cycling around the lake... More

This place is lovely, loads of parking, and cycle and walking paths close by as well. They put lots of events on over the year and hold weddings. We went for a Tudor day on a Sunday recently, the staff and atmosphere were great. The building itself has recently been taken over by a community group. Its steeped in history... More

I've lost count of the number of times we have visited here. It was also the venue for our wedding so it is very special to us. A cosy little tearoom, staff that are always friendly and helpful and a tudor house very well maintained. Car park right next to it and nice gardens surround the house. Lots of interesting... More

I visited the 'childrens' Halloween special event and have to say it was a complete disaster! As we arrived we were greeted by a lady dressed as a vampire who was nice and pleasant. We then went further in and joined in with the story telling which was fine. There was a lady dressed as a witch that was completely... More

This is a must if you want to see how life used to be. A friendly, welcome place to visit. Low entry fee and no great amount of time required. See how your wealthy ancestors would have lived. But it is not a house owned by aristocracy but fairly ordinary folk. An hour or so then a walk around the... More

Excellent glimpse back in time at this small farmhouse, with an authentic kitchen, stone floors, 4-poster beds and a lovely homely atmosphere. Friends of the Hall make and embroider the bedding, curtains etc,. and from time to time the Hall hosts specialists who weave wool on looms and put on games and the like for children. Well worth a visit.
