“Probably the smallest NT property we have visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We visited this on a sunny day in June. As stated it is one of the smallest NT houses we have visited. It has a nice peaceful back garden and is just a stones throw from Salisbury Cathedral. The voluntary guides were most helpful and described everything that we wanted to know about the property.

“Small and quaint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This must be one of the National Trusts smallest properties! A nice place to spend half and hour and enjoy a nice cup of tea.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've recently joined the National Trust and visited Mompesson House with my daughter as it was the nearest property to my home. I am so glad I did!
Although a smallish house, we spent a good deal of time looking round because everything was staged so well and was so interesting and the guides here are so helpful and knowledgeable. The gardens were a delight too, with a lovely little tea room (my favourite!) which was in a wonderfully quiet and sunny spot in the garden – you really couldn’t tell that you were in the middle of a city!
I will definitely visit again, if only to recharge my batteries for a few hours!

“Lovely gem of a house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A beautiful little house tucked away from the bustle of the close. Lovely plaster work on the ceilings with knowledgeable and friendly room guides. The garden at the back is very peaceful.
