It's amazing to see the bed that Charles II slept in when escaping, still in the room he used (and the priest hole). There were craft activities as well - hope that we get our wish on stirring the Christmas pudding!

Small dark house, recommend guided tour as very informative and enthusiastic guide explained history, which is really the highlight of the visit. Wet day in winter so did not tour grounds. Would suggest combining visit with other attractions nearby as could not spend day at this NT site.

This house dating from the 16th century is a fascinating property to visit. Famous for its connection to the fleeing Charles I it is jammed packed with aterfacts from the time of time of the civil war. Not a grand house but very homely farmhouse with a fire lit in the kitchen and tables set for dinner and you are... More

Only of note because Charles the second hid there. In itself just a smallish country home with no wow factor. Not really worth the money if you are paying full price.worth a peek if you have a national trust membership card

Very interesting and informative guide to show you around the house - well worth doing one of the tours. The grounds were great to explore too - especially for children. There was apple baking, apple/pear pressing, making dream catcher activities among other things. There was also a great "tree house" which has recently opened - really is great. The restaurant/tea...

Excellent guided tour with a little time to take some photos using low light setting!. The house had a 'lived in' feel. Almost like the family had just left or were about to return to some of the rooms. Well worth a visit. We found that the sat nav helped us get back onto the right motorway to go home!

When we arrived their was a very pleasant parking attendant Who advised us where to park. We are national trust members so I... More

This is a really good National Trust property. We took the guided tour and our guide Malcom was superb, really bringing the history of the house to life in the most enthusiastic and knowledgable way. Nice cafe and also a woodland walk
