“Beautiful 1860s Gothic house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

This lovely house looks like something out of a picture book - amazing to think the owner had 21 children here! Wonderfully preserved with great furnishings and a lovely garden. Tucked in on a road behind Broadway shops in Newmarket, it is easy to get to from the bright green Link bus route. Great for kids and adults.
