Unique property
Sep 2021
We stopped here on the way up North, it is not far off the M6 and is a great distraction from average speed cameras and traffic cones. I’m not sure I have ever seen a structure like this before in terms of its completeness, design and upkeep. It is hard to tell the new from the old such is the quality of restoration, at first sight it is hard to fathom how the place is still standing or ever survived.
The outside areas were not as impressive as the insides - there was some replanting going on.
Unfortunately the café was closed on the day we visited as that was part of the reason for the stopover, but glad we visited

A real little treasure.
Sep 2021 • Couples
What a gem of a place. How it remains standing is amazing, hardly a vertical wall or level floor anywhere. A tribute to the skill and expertise of the NT teams responsible for the upkeep. Guides very helpful and well informed. We shall certainly be going again as it's the sort of place you spot something new each time you go.

Glad it was free - left very quickly
Sep 2021 • Family
We visited as part of the heritage open day as we don’t hold NT membership at the moment. To say it was a disappointment was an understatement - the staff were too busy carrying on their personal conversations to answer any questions from visitors and there were no thoughts for covid safety at all (unlike calke abbey which we visited earlier in the day). Didn’t feel safe at all inside the house as too many people in a very small space. Left after a quick walk around the garden.

Magnificent house but shame about the garden
Sep 2021 • Couples
We used the opportunity of the Heritage Open Day to revisit our favourite building for the first time since Covid. It was good to be back again and the staff, such as there were left, were friendly and welcoming. It is such a special building and we love it so much. There was a lady in costume who was very knowledgeable and informative. She even played the bagpipes in the courtyard which made our visit feel very special and unique.
However, our delight in the house was tempered by the state of the garden, which was very sorry indeed. We could hardly walk along the path for weeds and the viewing mound was almost inaccessible due to the stinging nettles. It seems that the absence of guides (who used to be fantastic) and the state of the gardens is due to cutbacks. It’s very shortsighted as they enhanced both the house and the visit. The lovely Tudor garden is now weeds or plants gone to seed. They are in a very sorry state and such a shame
We hope that when we go back next year that things will have returned to normal and we can once more enjoy all this Tudor gem and it’s gardens.

Great

Nice place to visit. We have been here a number of times over the years, Its an amazing place to see and it has its own moat which is rarely seen these days as they usually fill them in.

The house itself is twisted and bowed and some of the floors are uneven, but its still a great place to see with some really friendly staff, some dressed in period questions and happy to answer and questions.

Absolutely Stunning Tudor Manor House
Sep 2021
We were lucky enough to win a day's NT pass and this was our chosen property, but to be honest we would have paid to get in anyway.

This really is one of the best preserved Tudor properties in the world and has to be seen to be believed. How it's survived is remarkable.

The staff were utterly charming throughout the property. They really knew their stuff and had a clear love for the property. We also thought the information panels were pitched just right with fascinating information.

The "pre-loved" children's books hut was also a big hit for our little ones. The shop had some very well priced second-hand books as well.

Special mention also to the tea room. The Leek & Potato soup was delicious!

National Trust visit

Always a great visit to this National Trust treasure, staff very friendly and helpful. Their cafe is amazing, we had the soup with some sandwiches and a pot of filtered coffee, couldn't fault it, highly recommended.

An amazing place
Aug 2021
How it managed to remain complete and in such good condition is amazing. As you wander around inside you get an idea of what life would have been like living there. There are information panels which are worth a read and also now there are volunteers around to answer questions as best as they know.

The gardens aren't large but they are worth a walk around. Go out from the lawn through the hedge and walk around the moat in an anti-clockwise direction to find a hidden corner and a seat in an arbour.

A Rare Gem! Worth A Detour!
Aug 2021 • Family
A rare gem of Tudor opulence. Worth a detour!

So few Tudor grand homes remain in their original state that this is a real treat.

Fascinating Little Moreton Hall
Aug 2021
This is a fascinating place to visit, we have been many times over the years and yesterday we took our granddaughters. The history is almost too much to take in . The staff are helpful and very always on hand to talk about the building . We feel that it needs a lot of work now to stabilise the building's structure, it would be such a shame if any of it was lost for future generations. I know the National Trust has suffered from lack of revenue during Covid but why is there no proper gift shop on site, our granddaughters were willing and able to spend money ! The tea room is lovely and we would recommend it.
