Took the girls here this afternoon.Only been here a couple of times before.It only cost £3 for the family--fantastic value.The Hall was decorated beautifully,it must have been lovely to live in Tudor times,well at Christmas,at least.The tables were set for a feast,I think the people here would have been rather wealthy.Pheasants,Hares and Duck were hung over the fireplace and a...

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.

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
