Spent a couple of hours here, what a lovely little place with an interesting and scientific history. The manor house itself is great and the volunteers were full of enthusiasm and interesting facts (as always with NT places) and the original apple tree is still there, which we thought was particularly exciting. Take time to have a go with the... More

Small venue but varied things to do, there is the house itself to look round, the famous tree of Isaac Newton to see, a science centre, animals and an activity centre for kids. Really interesting place and a great way to spend a few hours.

How nice to visit an unpretentious house steeped in scientific history. You wonder how such a great mind developed in such humble environment. Full marks to the National Trust for their work. Excellent friendly and knowledgeable guides superb discovery room, fantastic forbidding scientists. You could almost hear Newton's brain working in such tranquil surroundings in the garden and under "the"... More

Staff were very friendly and informative, great with the kids (aged 9+13), with interesting stories about Newton's life. Small Manor house, garden with 'apple tree' and a science barn where the children can have fun doing experiments. Small cafe a gift shop, plus... More

A small manor house with an orchard made famous because one owner observed gravitic force in the orchard. The historic manor is preserved as a museum to the life of Isaac Newton and the associated buildings such as the stables contain displays about science and interactive activities for families. The original apple tree where Newton saw the apple fall is... More
