This is an extremely interesting property to visit (regardless of your political persuasion) with very knowledgeable guides. You are taken round the house in small groups on a guided tour and for our visit we had a different guide for each room. The property has a 'lived in' feel which makes it all the more attractive and we were encouraged... More

The gardens are a must to visit and they are well kept and extend right down to the River and to the adjacent water meadows. The guides were most informative and we spoke to the Head staff Stuart and Pam who had previously worked for Ted Heath. Fascinating and a real must see property if you have an hour or... More

Most interesting and excellent guide showing us all the pictures and collections in the house. She was most comprehensive. Only five of us were on the tour, so plenty of time to ask questions.

On a wet bank holiday it was an excellent choice. Very atmospheric piece of history. Well worth a visit. Despite the rain the gardens were beautiful.

Three generations of one family were in our group for this visit and we all enjoyed it immensely. The guides were knowledgable, interested and interesting and did an excellent job of showing our group round at just the right pace to allow you to look at everything you wanted to for yourself. Love the fact that the house has been... More

The house is amazing with its wonderful homely rooms still kept as it was in Sir Edward's day. The staff enthusiastically show visitors around explaining the history of the house and who had visited the house as Sir Edward's guests. The garden are superb too.

I loved the enthusiasm & delight which the various voluntary stewards displayed for this house & it's various rooms. One steward per room (or indeed corridor). They added great value to the tour round. Not to be missed!

I visited this afternoon and was delighted with the welcome from the staff. They only take people round in small groups of about 12. On entering one is taken into the hall where Edward Heath's collection of nauticalia is kept. There are models of his yachts Gypsy Moth 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The staff have loads of interesting... More

We decided just to visit the gardens which go down to the river. Peaceful and secluded. However it cost £5 each to look at a large garden. For the same price we were able to look round the extensive grounds and gardens of Highclere Castle.

Thank you your positive comments. However, can I please correct the quoted cost of entry to the garden. We charge £2.50 per person and not £5 as stated. If indeed you were charged £5 per person please contact us to discuss a refund. More

Visiting Edward Heath's former home gives a fascinating insight in to his life and passions. The visit includes the principal downstairs rooms including the reception room, dining room, music room and Edward Heath's private snug. Every room has a theme including sailing, music and Heath's fascinaion and collaboration with China and has preserved exactly as Heath wished, even down to... More
