Small but beautiful 15th century Manor House managed by the National Trust. A large part of the house in still lived in so you only got to visit a few rooms, these were gorgeous though and we had a lovely visit. There was also a great garden and a church nearby The Church of St. Mary the Virgin that you... More

We were looking for a place to visit that wouldn't be too difficult for a friend of ours that isn't very mobile. Although there are plenty of steps in the house and uneven surfaces, it is very small and therefore not very tiring. The house consists of three rooms downstairs of which you can walk into two of them, and... More

It was nice to come and explore on a nice sunny afternoon, However we soon got bored. Its nice if you like that sort of thing but dont expect a grand house as it is only small. I would recommend doing a few properties in the area

We organised it so that we could visit several NT properties in one day. This was second on our list and to say that we were surprised at what we found is an understatement. It was like going back in time. It is quite a small manor house that was built over a period of several hundred years featuring Gothic... More

We nearly didn't go because it is only open on selected days but I'm glad we made the effort. Well worth the visit.

This is a quintisential National Trust property, but small, most interesting and absolutely exquiste. allow an hour or so only for your visit. There are none of the usual NT facilities here, but there is a pub nearby - the New Inn.

Off the beaten track. Magnificent plaster ceilings. Off-beat yew topiary - including a recreation of the demolished east wing. No tea shop but Mr Salvat's Coffee Room isn't far away. Only open 2-5pm. Check the National Trust website for details.

Westwood Manor is in a different class to most National Trust Properties as it has been left virtually intact and very little alteration has been made to its original features. It is small by NT standards but but it has been preserved to an impeccable standard. Part of the property is occupied and, therefore, not open to the public but... More

This is a beautiful manor house with Elizabethan/Jacobean decoration. But it's not all open to the public, and there are only 5-6 rooms to visit. Definitely worth dropping in if you're in the area, but it won't take you long - my wife and I were only there for about 30 mins, including visiting the church nearby, and we're the... More

A little faded manor but with a real character all of its own - try it and be surprised
