A very nice atmosphere and very helpful staff that tell you a lot about the history. I could not find any café which I was expecting but except for that I learnt a lot.

Beautifully decorated. A fantastic old fashioned Christmasy fill with a roaring fire, mulled wine and bell ringers. The wardens that look after the cottage were extremely friendly and wellcoming. A must to visit this 14th century cottage. Look out for the years events.
