We stayed at a holiday park and decided to visit the Osbourne House knowing nothing about it before we arrived.
It was HRH Queen Victoria's favourite residence and is quite a find for anyone who takes a slight intErest in royal families or history.
The house is amazing, the beginiNgs a gallery of pictures that wouldnt seem fitting but as you move through the house you learn about Albert and Victoria's ideas on creating a new world.
The rooms are amazing with so many features and the landscaped gardens are also a feast on the eyes, but what is not to be missed is a short walk, or an even quicker shuttle ride about half a mile from the main house.
A Swiss cottage, made especially for the children with everything in childs scale, is looked on to several allotment patches one for each of Victoria and Alberts children, they grew vegetables and sold them to the local villagers to understand the concept of money, and behind the swiss cottage, and amazing minature museum, filled with all manner of gifts sent from royality around the world for the children, you will never see all these things in one room, and to us, this alone was worth the entrance fee.
Deffinatly recommended if visiting the area, as i said IT MADE OUT HOLIDAY!
