An amazing NT house, with so much to see. Really interesting, and the guides brought it to life. Lovely garden and view. highly recommended.

The manor dates from the C16 and so is interesting in itself. Nevertheless a vast and eclectic collection representing the lifetime's passion of the last owner who was interested in anything craftsman-made is what leaves the greatest impression on the visitor. The manor and collection was given to the National Trust in the mid C20. The NT has in fact... More

This was a very unique NT property and unlike any I have visited before. The guide explained about the owners fascination for collecting unusual objects that may otherwise have been lost due to them becoming obsolete. He then bought a beautiful old manor in which to house them. His own home is in the stables next door. The place is... More

We are members of the national trust so don't think twice about popping in for half an hour or so. We loved pushing the pram along the path up to the house and looking at the sheep and the lovely plants. We then had a lovely home cooked lunch in the cafe. We were made to feel so welcome with...

The manor was bought to house all the "junk" that Charles Wade had collected during his lifetime. He chose to live in a small house by the manor. We thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the items he'd collected but would have preferred more explanations we could read rather than have to keep asking all the room guides but this was... More

Beautiful house, beautiful gardens, friendly guides, and a really eccentric collection of oddities. What's not to like?! The house felt uneven at times walking around and there were that many small rooms and stairwells that you can feel a little disorientated. The thing about this house is that it has the one room in all the houses i've ever been... More

Let me begin with what we did like; the gardens were beautiful. Even though it is October, there were still beautiful plants and flowers to see. As far as the house goes, it was strange and somewhat disappointing. Coming from the States for a limited visit, I think there are other places that our time would have been better spent.

I'm not sure how to say this. This house was extremely odd. Bordering on creepy. He was obviously a hoarder. I have never seen so much stuff in a house in my life. Plus he didn't live there. The house was only for his strange collection of curiosities. Eerie. A true eccentric English man with enough money to indulge his... More

Walking along the footpath to the manor we saw buzzards circling overhead - a truly majestic sight. The collection of artefacts is one of the most fascinating I have ever seen and the volunteers are only too pleased to explain the background to any particular piece. It was a "golden moment" and we can't wait to plan a return visit.

What a treasure this amazing house turned out to be. We were stunned by the variety and range of items in this astounding collection put together by Charles Wade. Imagine, just buying a Victorian House to store your collectables in! and choosing to live in the adjacent "Priest House"! The National Trust have done an amzinf job in preserving what... More
