Owner description: A tour of this 17th-century manor house captivates visitors with its oak-paneled hall, Carlisle collection of miniatures and even a haunted room or two.
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Went there with friends and had a lovely time looking around. Be aware there is no real wheelchair access. One friend in a wheelchair was allowed free entry, as was her husband as carer, but she was limited to the ground floor. There are videos to watch which give a virtual tour of the house so she didn't fully miss out however.

There is lots to see with the miniature rooms in the attic particularly a treasure not to be missed. The staff in each room were brilliant, giving all the information you could want without overwhelming you. Pictures are allowed as long as the flash is off.

The tea-room was also a lovely, relaxed place and the food (both normal and gluten-free) was delicious and reasonably priced.

A real gem!

First time here for a lot of years. A very nice house set next to a river. The house has some excellent features and some very good guides who point out the history in each room and relate it to the family that called it home.
We will not leave it as long again to visit.

Staff were warm, helpful and friendly.
The hall was interesting and the grounds were lovely. A nice size as not to get overwhelmed with information and easy to get around in a few hours.
The cafe was lovely, had the cream tea which was delicious.
