A splendid building full of interesting features, the lady in the reception was very knowledgeable too. Loads of early architecture and techniques to see if you are into that. It’s right next to the church which is also very nice.

After a diversion due to roadworks we eventually found this beautiful building. Well worth getting lost to see. Very friendly tree in the garden too. Staff was lovely and answered any questions we had. Very peaceful place to see. I could have stayed longer.

Went to Bede House and it was full of history, from the first Bishop of Lincoln to being changed into the house for bedsmen a kind of almshouse

Another gem steeped in history, hidden off the beaten track and worth an hour wandering around, interesting story of its use through the years, easy access from parking. Peaceful

Historical masterpiece set in a beautiful village amid the green rolling hills of Rutland. Stroll through the rooms and soak up the ancient architecture and construction skills and the different life experiences between bishops, royalty and be Des men, absolutely fascinating.
