Place where King Charles II took refuge after fleeing from nearby Boscobel where he hid in the Oak Tree. The site is approached down a narrow, twisting lane. The first Car Park on the right is quite small and more for those wanting to go walking in the woods. Turn left next to the house and there is ample space... More

The house is fascinating. Really interesting history and the grounds have been improved recently. There is a brilliant treehouse that the kids and adults love. We have visited 5 times already in the last three months. Always something new and interesting.

Half term and what ti do. This national trust property has much to keep children of all ages busy and involved. Older ones should be fascinated by the story of Charles second - complete with priest hole and exciting escape story engagingly told by the knowledgeable guide. With real quil pens to write with they can get properly messy -... More

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
