This house is well tucked away, but worth a visit. Delightful Chinese room and a room full of intriguing old musical instruments.

A lovely cottage in the courtyard, so peaceful, just the ticket! Well equipped and comfy beds, The lounge opening out to our own private walled garden. The staff and courtyard traders, especially Peter who runs the art gallery, so friendly and helpful giving recommendations for visits and places to eat and drink. Our art course was cancelled because of the virus but the weeks stay was delightful anyway. Thank you

I recently ordered a takeaway afternoon tea box for my mother’s birthday from the Phoenix Kitchen. Due to the recent pandemic she was anxious about going out so this was perfect as I was able to collect and then bring back to the house for her. The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious and very well presented. Would highly recommend

We visited Claydon on a rainy Monday in March, so a tough test for a visit! The National Trust have only recently taken over parts of the house and garden so I suspect there will be changes at some point. It's a moderately-sized and rather plain but charming house with open countryside around but full of interesting history. The Verneys managed to hold onto the house over 400 years despite many ups and downs and Florence Nightingale stayed here many times when her sister was the resident Lady Verney. The guides are well informed and the rooms staggeringly large with lovely ceilings. The in-laid staircase is beautiful. There's a lot of stairs to get to the Florence Nightingale bit and museum at the top of the house which will be difficult with those of limited mobility. There's also the chance to try on a corset and 18th century clothes! There's a lovely coffee shop with nice lunches & cakes and an array of art studios (where you can book on some really interesting courses) and some arty shops, one worth a visit alone for its unusual taxidermy and expensive trinkets! Florence Nightingale's original Crimean coach is also presently on display. Well worth a visit, suspect very lovely in summer when the gardens are in full bloom!

We visited Claydon House because we were staying locally and are National Trust members. First off, the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable that we learned a lot from them. The interiors are just stunning, sadly no photos are allowed as it is still owned by the family not the National Trust as far as I understand. Currently they are displaying Florence Nightingale's bedroom in the house and her carriage in the courtyard, which was interesting to see. You have to pay extra to enter the gardens, which we didn't do as it was pouring with rain!
