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

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

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.

This place is tucked away at the end of a single track road but worth while. It's claim to fame is that it was where King Charles hid in a priest hole in the house to escape Cromwell's troops. The house is very well preserved and contains interesting period pieces. We had a guided tour and the tour guide was... More

The guides were very knowledgeable, they interacted with the visitors by asking us questions and were very pleasant. The house was quirky and one felt as if the owners had only just nipped out

We visited Moseley old Hall today and really enjoyed our afternoon out thanks to the guided tour by Malcolm. I really would recommend anyone who visits takes a guided tour as it was so informative on the history of the Hall with lots of quirky facts given by our guide that relate to commonly known phrase used every day .

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.
