Cold February morning and wanting make use of our National Trust Membership we headed out to Little Moreton Hall. I wondered if my 3 and 4 year old could cope with a Tudor house but I didn't need to worry...
The first thing to say is that I have never met such lovely staff. Without exception, staff were fantastic, welcoming and on hand to help. The lady who gave us our tickets spoke to my children which is something I appreciate, and she gave them an 'i-spy' quiz to do around the house. This activity was great as it got us to interact with the children in a way we couldn't do without it as we didn't have enough previous knowledge of the house. It got us to look at and appreciate the features of the house in a very engaging way and the staff were really helpful if we needed any clues. I appreciated that staff took time to answer the questions posed by my 4 year old son and he just loved the whole experience of exploring this fascinating house.
We ate lunch in the restaurant and the food was outstanding from service to presentation. The children had a platter of food which they loved, I had the pate which was delicious and my husband had a sandwich which was lovely. The restaurant is small so on a busy day I imagine there could be a wait for a table but there is a cafe and plenty of room for picnics when the weather warms up.
I highly recommend this as a family outing - it is a small attraction but for me this is part of the charm as our young children didn't get overwhelmed or fed up. The staff clearly love the place and were outstanding. We'll be back!
