I took advantage of one of the free visit days and still was given the audio to take round.The history was very interesting, there was plenty to see and the staff were helpful and friendly. Its only let down was the audio which... More

These are largely old farming equipment including a threshing machine, seed riddlers, a still air incubator for eggs etc. The Manor itself whilst atmospheric with a... More

A fascinating restored manor house in the small town of Alford. Plenty to see, though do use the audio guide. Try to go on weekends when there's something special going on as this just boosts the experience, the craft weekends are always good.

Beautifully restored and preserved 17th century thatched manor house gives a wonderful opportunity to learn how people lived in the past. Audio guide takes through the house and grounds. Very friendly and enthusiastic volunteers made it a very enjoyable visit
