The manor was great and we loved the fact that you were allowed to touch the exhibits. The staff were so friendly and had great knowledge. The gardens were amazing and were well cared for. We will definitely visit again.

The manor is part of a good day out for the family. The National Trust operate a car park nearby (free to use if you are members). Then it is a short walk to the manor. On the way you pass a cafe, shop and a couple of museums. The Manor House is operated a bit different to others. Here... More

Kids loved visiting this kid friendly house. They could bounce on chairs and lie on beds, grind flour in the kitchen....lively time here. We are national trust members so it was included but would have been worth it here. Tip....don't pay to go in the museum....rubbish

Every room was a different age which fitted the room decoration. What a little gem. Guides that obviously loved the place were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. do not rush this Manor it deserves your time. the gardens were amazing and so well kept it was worth the extra time exploring them

Completely different to other NT buildings you may have seen but really interesting. A manor that no one knew what to do with, then Penelope Keith and the BBC got involved. Maybe watch Manor Reborn before your visit.

Great day spent with family children enjoyed the Easter egg hunt even though the eldest is 13. Manor house is a great place to visit because you can sit on chairs lie on beds and really have an hands on experience. Room guides were lovely sharing loads of information especially with the children. Plenty of places to enjoy our picnic.... More

Avebury Manor is unique. Where else can you visit a National Trust site and sit in the chairs, lie on the beds, and be very childish playing with all the items on display. The gardens are beautiful, and we loved the topiary. The eating and drinking facilities are to the highest National Trust standards - and they cope so well... More

I am a member the National Trust and Avebury Manor was on my route back from visiting friends. I had forgotten it was the Easter Half Term so there were lots of families with young children. If I go again I will make sure it is NOT in the school holidays. Within the Manor each room is decorated to reflect... More

Great place to visit with the kids as it is very much hands on for them. The friendly guides encourage the kids to try everything out in each of the rooms. Good parking, which is free to Natinal Trust members otherwise £5 for the day. Plenty of space for the kids to run around, the stones are accessable unlike Stonhenge.... More
