Fascinating History

Visited here as NT members and felt that we had really gone back centuries. Great historical education, both locally and nationally.

Free to national trust, else it would have cost £16.30 for our family, which I thought was quite steep. Was great to see how an Elizabethan / Victorian house looked and what they used back in that era. Also great that you could actually touch things and get up close to it. But not a lot there to keep you... More

The house was ok. A lot of history. Some of the rooms were set out in Victorian style (as opposed to Elizabthan). Was ok as included in my national trust membership. May have been a little disappointed if I'd have paid full price.

We spent a really nice hour & a half looking around the house. Loved trying on the pieces of costume. Hats, helmets etc. Also for myself, the kitchen & all its old utensils, bygone kitchen aids etc were of great interest. The stories surrounding the house were also interesting. Although not a huge museum I'm sure most people would enjoy... More

The house is interesting and the children were kept amused for an hour. The entrance fee over £16 for 3 young children and 2 adults was about right.
