Called in today as we were passing by. AMAZING PLACE. DEFINITELY GO. Friendly staff. Educational. Things to interact with and see and learn. I'm 69 yes old and learnt so much from Dave and Phil and the ladies in the house. The only negative was the horrible coffee ( kept warm in a jug flask) which was Luke warm and... More

This is a national trust property and one of the few that is open during some of our winter months. There is a nice café serving the usual soup and cakes and pots of tea. The café also houses some quite interesting hands on activities and certainly makes for a noisy area. The café is not too large and even... More

Lovely place to visit, and really interesting to see the inside of the house. Its part of our history.

We arrived for the 2.30pm tour. Amazingly for such a cold day in January there were enough visitors for two tours. The National Trust have done a lot here. The house is furnished in period style, which gives a strong flavour of how it must have been like when Newton was growing up there. The contrast with how life was... More

Great place to visit - allow at least a couple of hours. We pre-booked on the 45 minute tour of the house a couple of days before our visit. The guide that took us around the house was extremely knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. (One of the best guided tours we've ever had). As well as the house,... More

We visited on a cold day in January (do wrap up; there is no heating in the manor) and chose to come here as it is one of the few National Trust places open all year (though the manor house is not open every day do check). The staff were all friendly and helpful; Our guide round the house was... More

Visited this sight with our daughter and 2 grandsons from Australia.There was plenty for the children do to keep them amused from building paper planes to carrying out experiments attached to gravity and light. The staff were welcoming and knowledgable and very hands on in explaining how the experiments worked. The Manor house was quite impressive however there were no... More

Was staying in Melton Mowbray so visited here on the coldest day of the year! I enjoyed visiting the place but found it was a bit highbrow for us, the guide was a bit stuffy too, we visited Grantham on our way back home and found their museum to have a lot more down to earth history of Sir Isaac...

We visited this place earlier in the year and made a repeat visit as the National Trust Guide said it was open and specially decorated for the Christmas period. We didn't realise that the visit was on the basis that we had a guided tour. We were the only ones on our tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and full... More

Prior to visiting, I expected I would have been in and out, had a coffee and seen all the attractions in under 2 hours. Being a small farm house, I felt this would allow for a steady stroll round to absorb all the information the venue would have to offer. I vastly underestimated the knowledge and insight that the volunteers... More
