Although the Christmas decorations have been in place a while. The house still looked lovely and very atmospheric. Lots of hard work. Admission is free but check opening times. Enthusiastic volunteers. Small with an interesting history, parking on road, very nice visit

This is a really unusual place - I can't think of anywhere else like it. It's an old pub where there was a meeting of a group of noblemen planning the Glorious Revolution of 1688.They were supposed to meet on a nearby moor but apparently...More
