There are 2 house tours a day, and you don't need to pre-book. The tours are 1:30 and 3.00pm. The cost if £8, or you can just visit the pretty garden for £5. We were the only 2 people on the 3pm tour and it was very interesting and informative. The house has connections with Charles 1st, which fitted it with our visit to Carisbrooke Castle. It is still a family home, so it is delightful that you can see and hear about the past history of the house.

In a peaceful setting with coastal views to the East, Nunwell is rich in history. Visitors should allow time for nearby Brading church, specifically the funerary monuments to the Oglander builders of Nunwell. Understandably perhaps, our volunteer guide's knowledge seemed limited to cue cards. Charles I's fabled overnight stay was the focal point of the tour; overlooked however was the significance of the Oglanders in the story of Wight's most illustrious son; pioneering scientist and polymath Robert Hooke whose father taught the Oglander children, furthering his professional standing and prospects in the process. Nunwell is very much a family home, free from the stuffiness of institutionalised heritage attractions; advertising and hospitality are minimal; during 2019 it is open on Mondays only until July; on Spring Bank Holiday, the first day of the open season the tea room was closed; all perhaps reflecting owners content to receive only the most inquisitive of visitors.

We had a private visit round the gardens as part of our local garden club trip. The owners are a lovely couple: the lady makes all the cakes that are served with the teas and coffees, and the cakes are as light as a cloud and with fantastic tastes. The gardens are well laid out with a good range of different plants, including a good selection of scented roses, along with alliums and many others. A lovely quiet place with views to die for.

Our local garden group visited the garden only privately recently. We were made most welcome by the owners who were available all the time to answer any questions we had about the planting. A large garden with roses and herbaceous borders full of a variety of plants, shrubs and trees which had been planted at different times over the previous two centuries. Gently sloping paths lead to a walled garden, mainly grassed within and home to 2 pygmy goats ( fenced in for our visit) and some chickens. Climbing up some steps lined with lavender gives a view towards the sea and over the surrounding countryside from the top.

History comes to life with a guided tour of the house and a walk around the gardens. The family are very hospitable and take great care in welcoming people to their home. The carefully constructed tour steps back into time starting with the Edwardian era and ending with the Jacobean and Charles I stay.
