This small manor house has always been occupied so there is a continious sense of history running through the house. It is tennanted still and the people living there have written an informative little history which is well recomended. There are only 6 rooms to see but some have lovely plaster work and fabrics. well worth a visit if you are in the area.

To be honest we weren't expecting much as its such a small place (that is also tenanted). But it was very charming and felt very 'homely' as it was actually lived in. Favourite part of the tour around the house was when we asked one of the guides if he'd play us a little tune on the Virginal (tiny restored harpsicord). Amazing to hear an instrument played that was made before Shakespere was born.!!

Small but pefectly formed. Beautiful old manor house. Room guides very friendly and informative. The Kings room is wonderful with great panels and naive paintings of many British monarchs.

A NT gem close to Bradford on Avon. Helpful volunteer room guides and a wealth of history packed into a small property. The parish tea rooms serve a range of cakes and a cream tea and all with a smile. Thanks for a delightful visit

Described in guide as a small manor house, 2 rooms to be precise, the rest are roped off also badly set up in my opinion, we followed 4 other people into a downstairs room which wasn't roped off only to be ejected by the tenant of the annexe who then roped it off to keep people out. Waste of time and fuel very dissapointed.

This is a complete joy of a house. The ancient hall had a floor added which makes for 2 levels of delight. The upper one - the Music Room is a perfect room. The Kings Room is fun especially when you learn it use to be a kitchen. Perfect house and lovely gardens. One little niggle - a shame the National Trust don't allow you to walk further into the sitting room and bedrooms. Just a little grudging NT

This is a lovely small house with beautifully decorated plaster ceilings, tapestries, and furniture. We also enjoyed chatting with all three guides in the house. For anyone who is spending some time around Bath, this is worth a visit.

We visited showery afternoon but still had a chance to look at the tidy gardens. The house is a very good example of early domestic architecture and the house guides were very helpful and informative. Check opening hours as quite limited. No facilities provided on site. Parking limited.

There aren't a lot of rooms to have a look at so it doesn't take long to look round. I had understood you had a guided tour but we were just given some printed information to take round with us. There are two small pond gardens and it is worth a visit to the church next door which doesn't belong to the National Trust. You can see some nice plasterwork, furniture and musical instruments. Edgar Lister was killed in a car crash and left the house to the National Trust in 1956. He did a lot of the tapestry covering the chairs and researched to make sure the colours and designs were from the correct period.

Small but very beautiful. I had not been for a while but had a recent visit and had forgotten how lovely it is. The building is very old and links to other local historic gems. The stewards were very friendly and pointed out a lot of the architectural and family history making it fascinating. The hedge is also shaped like a building which the guide said was where there had been another part of the house at one time. Clever. It does not take long to look around but it is well worth a detour. Check opening times though. The church is open next door and on the other side is the tythe barn.
