The curator of the home, Colin, was passionate about the house and its legacy, only adding to the experience. The house was beautifully maintained in its period and the stories that Colin told were... More

Visited on a wet and windy day as part of National Trust visit to this house and Paul's nearby. Both properties well-preserved - memories of the decor of the 50s and 60s!! And lots of Beatles history became clearer as a result. Both guides excellent. Lovely.

We found the lady very informative and interesting, her husband however spoilt the experience by liking the sound of his own voice too much. He took us in the... More
