Westwood Manor is in a different class to most National Trust Properties as it has been left virtually intact and very little alteration has been made to its original features. It is small by NT standards but but it has been preserved to an impeccable standard.
Part of the property is occupied and, therefore, not open to the public but the rooms which are on display are magnificent. The staff are friendly and informative and extremely helpful in explaining the history of the building. Of particular interest are the priceless musical instruments the Spinet and the Virginal. There is a CD for sale (only available from Westwood Manor) of music played on these instruments. This was actually recorded at Westwood Manor.
The gardens are not particularly large but they have been developed and maintained with understated good taste. The adjacent church is charming and picturesque and definitely worth looking round.
This property is not commercialised in any other way. They are not trying to sell anything (other than the CD) and they do not pretend to be "child friendly". The overall lack of facilities is, however, perfectly in keeping with the character and size of this property. The only comment I would make is that perhaps toilet facilities could be made available for those who require them.
