I love this place, it is like stepping back in time. The house is so homely, it feels you are an intruder that should not be there. Gives you a really good insight of how wealthier farming people lived.

Sentry Hill is a hidden gem of a house. I have visited several times and cannot wait to return. The tours are wonderful very personal and you learn something new everytime. What I love about the house is it feels like a family home with things not hidden away and there are no ropes. They have a beautiful garden that... More

Everything about Sentry Hill is good. It is a very interesting and fascinating place. One time I was there an award winning pipe band was playing in the courtyard. Memorable.

Sentry Hill is in a beautiful location. The house is small but it is set within beautiful gardens. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the tour of the house was very informative.

Got a tour of Sentry Hill, a historic farm house, today. Easy parking, tea room and good toilets. I was lucky to have a personal tour with the well informed and charming Nicola. She has a wealth of knowledge about the farm building, it's contents and the family who lived in it, as well as the local area. The garden... More

Spent a couple of hours at Sentry Hill on 4th May with my Mother and my 18 year old son. We were most impressed. Greeted at the door by a lovely Lady who gave us our very own tour of the house, explaining the history of the family in a most professional manner. She knew so much about the house... More

The guides who worked in here really knew their stuff. They even handled a heckler at the back of our group very well!
