“No Scones and No strawberries”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

A wonderful National Trust Building full of treasures from the past of Albany. It certainly does not have any strawberry products nor a cafe to have scones, so in my opinion a couple of the recent reviews obviously got muddled with where they visited.
This site and house of the first farm in Albany is worth a visit.

“A pleasant afternoon”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

A lovely knowledgable lass escorted us around the main building and a gentleman had some wonderful stories in the older cottage.
A beautiful historical building, felt they could have padded the information and exhibits a little better. It seems to have been forgotten as the town moves on with progress and newer attractions which is rather disappointing.
It also seemed such a shame not to be able to enjoy a devonshire tea in the peaceful gardens.

Nic ehistoric house, with not much happening, used to have a cafe which appears to have gone by the wayside- could have great potential but not doing much business

“Beautiful Garden”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

This place has a beautiful garden to relax in and some nice old buildings as it was the first farm in Albany. It is set between Middleton Beach and the Town Centre. Another great place to sit and relax and enjoy the cool weather. A great place for kids to wonder around.
