A small NT property, with a rather dark and sombre example of Victorian architecture. Not worth a special trip, but fie if passing.

Visited on a lovely sunny day. Taken on a good conducted tour (come in the morning for these). House built in 1890s, initially as a holiday home for London Solicitor James Beale. He was wealthy so he could specify the best architectural A & C design and fill it with good examples of William Morris wallpaper, furniture, materials and ceramics.... More

Interesting Arts and Crafts property with plenty to see. Many more rooms available for the visit than other similar properties. Well laid out grounds with kitchen garden and chickens! Good volunteer guides. Shop a bit limited. Nice cafe in converted barn.

Four of us, all members, visited and took one of the offered (free) tours. Whilst informative it was somewhat rushed and on balance we would have been best to wander through the house ourselves after a leisurely lunch. There is lots to see, including an upper floor but no lift or means of access for the disabled. Typical NT food... More

Really enjoy this visit with plenty of walks. We strolled out towards Hollybush Wood and after lunch to Rockinghill Wood. Interesting gardens and house as well as the usual excellent cafe and shop.

Arrived to find that it was guided tours only, I hate guided tours, but having made the effort to get there, decided to tolerate it. House supposedly open at 11, first tour at 11.15. On the tour, we were told some interesting things, but the guide book would've told us, and we were whisked through, no time to really look... More
