This is a lovely old property where Charles 2 hid from the Roundheads. Do take the guided tour of the house. It takes about an hour but it is so informative and interesting. Really excellent.

This beautiful old house is one of the national trusts hidden gems. At the end of a small windy road it we'll out of the way. If you go on a guided tour then the history of this house will come alive. Learn about King Charles II time at this house and a lot of what it was like to... More

Some very windy roads led us to this place - and we were directed to the overflow carpark. Was surprised how many people were visiting but it did not seem crowded. We signed up for the (free) 1 hour tour and were amazed at the history of the house and all of the Charles II history that our guide told... More

Staff are all very friendly and knowledgable. I certainly recommend the guided tour of the property. Lovely gardens with grapes, pears, apples and more to be seen. Quiz and mud kitchen to build your own mud pie for children as well as egg collecting. We went early morning and the kids activities didn't begin till around 2pm so was a... More

My husband and I visited here recently and were very impressed. The house is fantastic, very atmospheric and you get pulled back in time the second you walk in! We didn't arrive until 10 mins before last entries but were welcomed enthusiastically by the staff. I asked a question about something and a staff member not only answered but then... More

I quite enjoyed visiting this place. We are members which helps. I liked the quaint tea rooms. Staff were friendly. There were enough rooms to look around. There are smallish gardens but nice to look around.

Our second attempt as last week we visited on a day it was closed! Parked at Northycote Farm and walked to Moseley Old Hall- a slight variation to the prescribed route going but managed to follow instructions on the return. Booked the 12.30 tour with Ted - good guide with his own blend of humour with many origins of words... More

We went on a Saturday and they had a group dressed in 17thC clothing, cooking, sewing, playing music and banqueting!! It was fascinating. Everyone was willing to chat about the food, the lute, the sewing [ I learned how to do 17thC raised stitching on flowers and leaves - which I will try when I get time!] The house itself... More
