Amazing how much garden is tucked away behind this house. There wasn't a lot to see inside but what was on display helped explain the history of the family who built the house.

Nice house, quite small in comparison to other NT places, but cosy. Nice lady on duty at the door and lovely garden to explore. Met the 2 resident Cats and we thought the Cats Cemetery was so sweet, with proper little head stones.

Really enjoyed our visit to this house, garden and second hand bookshop. We didn't use the tea room. Staff helpful, friendly and informative. Interesting details of the Quaker family who owned the property for 150 years. Beautiful garden.
