Special Victorian house. Well preserved. Even has outside toilet. It is dark inside and must have been quite a sombre atmosphere inside. Loads of personal/local history of the Carlisle’s. They didn’t have any children but he always seemed to be visiting Scotland, which couldn’t have helped! Fascinating loft conversion with roof windows, sliding shutters , etc. Clever design. Details about problems with builders, home help are very interesting. Mrs C. kept diaries which are on show. Really worth the entrance fee. Free if you are a NT member.
