William Morris commissioned the building of this house but only stayed for 5 years - his decoration and influence are obvious but very few original artefacts remain. This doesn’t take away from the charm and social importance of the place. Set in a rambling ‘cottage...More

I found this a little disappointing when compared to other National Trust properties. It’s a relatively new national trust property, so I hope with time there will be more of the original decor and rooms furnished to how they may have been in. Over the...More

There is limited parking on the roads around the red house but watch out for the parking restrictions. It can get very busy especially if it’s a sunny weekend
