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

I enjoyed my visit to Moseley Old Hall very much. It is intimate and atmospheric. The guides are excellent in sharing information in an interesting way. The shop and cafe are both of the usual National Trust high quality. I recommend Moseley for a special visit. Small can be beautiful too!

It is a small house to visit but the tours are very well organised and very informative. The Coffee Shop is very good also and it has lovely grounds.

Have visited here a few times with my daughter and it is a lovely hidden gem right on our doorstep really. The hi light has to be the priest hole which (unless health and safety have interfered since the last time we went) you can actually go down.The gardens are lovely and we have also attended the carol concert at...

Decided to do something Cultural when my parents came down to visit and chose this National Trust property as it was one of the cheapest to get into. A little off the beaten track and it might help if you have a satnav but you can see why Charles II chose to hide here in the 1600's. Beautiful gardens and... More

I paid a visit to \Moseley Old Hall and went on the guided tour, which is included in the £7.50 entrance price. The tour took about an hour and the guide was excellent, telling us the history of the family and Charles the seconds visit. He had a very extensive knowledge and made it funny as well as informative. We... More

We visited here on 14th September under the impression that it was a National Trust free day but I was wrong apparently costing £7.50 each for the house and gardens. The layout of the whole place is a little confusing being that you go to reception and pay for your entrance and then go to the house and then have... More

We had a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who gave just the right amount of information and in a lively and informative way. She explained the history of the house and pointed out all the quirky and interesting points of it. We learnt a lot that we didn't know. The gardens are beautifully maintained and it was altogether a very... More

You know at Christmas when you get the kids a great present and they just play with the box? That's what happened with us today - fantastic old house, loads if history, priest holes, furniture, stuff to look at, quiz to do etc. etc. but what did the three kids (10, 6 and 4) with us do? Spent their time... More

A small timecapsule showing where King Charles II hid after the battle of Worcester, and before he was helped out of the country to exile in France. The house and its story was brilliantly brought to life by our guide, who provided the conducted tour of the house, full of wit and information.
