This historic property is located in Smallthorpe which for the most part is a bit of a dump. The house itself has seen better days and while the curators have made something of an effort to portray what life would have been like for the inhabitants, it does not quite do the place justice. It's okay for a brief visit,... More

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
