The history of this Museum is part of experience. Not only are the rooms decorated to show different eras this exact building passed thru, but you get to touch and feel the history of fabric (clothing & draperies), bedding (i.e. mattresses/pillows), furniture, and even wall decor (hand painted walls vs wall paper vs wood panelings). Also, great for children! there... More

This was a really different museum which allowed you to touch everything. This meant that you could sit in all the chairs and read the books off the shelves. This made it really different to any other house I've visited and really worth a visit. The rooms are styled the fashions of various periods of the property- dating from the... More

Apart from the extensive stone circle the Manor House is well worth a visit.Each room has been dressed in a different era and the furniture all hand made. The wallpaper,carpet and wall hangings all specially made. You can sit on the chairs ,lay on the beds-take you shoes off first, and poke around in all the cupboards.The guides are all... More

A 17th century mNir has been refurbished in a very interesting way . Each of the rooms have been redecorated in a different period to represent the different owners which occupied it . Very well researched ,which makes it very interesting.

Worth a visit when in Avebury. Its a lovely old Manor house and thanks to the BBC all rooms have been "designed" in date order. The quality is very good and wit a well informed and friendly staff was a very pleasant visit

A very different experience from other National Trust places. The furnishings and decor are based around the different times that people have lived here and are not necessarily connected to the house, which was more or less empty until the tv series recreated the interior. The room guides are very friendly, enthusiastic, and very informative, so keen to make your... More

A memorable visit. The guides were eager to explain interesting facts about the house. It was wonderful to be able to sit in the chairs and touch the furniture and objects. It's obviously reproduction but the national trust has made this manor house special

We visited on a sunny Sunday after a wet Saturday in the autumn mid-term break. The car park was very busy as was the courtyard and café, there was a Halloween 'cat' hunt for the children. The manor itself was quieter and very interesting, the reproduction wallpapers especially fascinating and the volunteer guides nicely gauging how much information to give.... More

A wonderful experience to follow the people who have owned this magnificent building over many generations, you can handle the exhibits and lay on the beds and have a snooker shot or two. Full marks to the volunteers who make your visit so enjoyable. Visit the cafe for the best sausage roll made from fresh pork,apple and onion as well... More

This property was featured on a BBC programme while being restored. Unlike many NT property this is a "hands on " visit. Sit on the chairs, climb on the beds. The only untouchable is the beautiful hand painted oriental wall paper.Most of the furniture has been reproduced in keeping with its era, but all with great care for detail. Having... More
