Very much enjoyed our visit to this property. Reminded me very much of the Hardman’s House in Liverpool. If you are expecting a mansion with acres of gardens then you are in for a shock. Due to the small size of the property, places must...More

We visited Mr Straws house and enjoyed the step back in time. The softly spoken lady who introduced us to the house explained well the family background. But other staff, hovering around were conducting such a loud conversation, it became almost impossible to hear her....More

Family of 4was £18 , worth every penny no concessions . We went 10 years ago and it was still fab to look round , shame our grand children didn’t like it much (14 and 12) , but we still loved it and a great day out 😊
