An unusual visitor attraction. Car parking a few hundred yards away. A bit of a hike if you have a Blue Badge. If you have you can get nearer and park on yellow lines for a short time. It is well worth the walk and effort to get here. A modest house as one would expect from the original Quaker owners. The garden a delight of seperate areas for exploration. A pleasant courtyard tearoom.

NT property in the "middle of town" and a free car park a couple of hundred yards away so, don't miss this lovely place if you're in the area! The gardens are a true delight and we joined "the tour" with a very informative guide and had the good fortune to gain access to the "Friends meeting Place" garden too. The "Orangery" will soon be fully restored which will add to the experience. There's a lovely cafe in the old stables and very enjoyable to sit out during the nice weather we've been having. The house itself is not a "Grand Country Estate" type property but is full of history and gives a lot of insight into the industry of the local area. We enjoyed the upstairs & downstairs visit here. Highly recommended.
NT members free, £4.95 for none members!

This is a local treasure that we visit frequently for an 'escape' from the modern fast life around us all. The guides are friendly and helpful. Occasionally there is someone playing the piano in the delightful library, which then can be heard as you tour the house at your own pace. The Barn restaurant is in a delightful area of the fabulous garden, with a small but comprehensive second hand book shop adjoining it. Food uses are from local sources, where possible and staff are friendly and helpful too. The café can be accessed without needing to access the house. There are no disabled facilities within the house but the gardens are a haven in a busy town and has beautiful plants, trees and shrubs to admire and easily accessible for disabled people. Not too large a house to view, as it was a townhouse originally, with rooms of necessity rather than of displaying wealth on a grand scale.

National trust property in the centre of Wisbech set amongst a street of Georgian properties from the times when Wisbech was a prosperous port.Beautifully preserved house and lovely gardens with a tea room in the thatched barn.Not huge like Wimpole Hall etc but definitely worth a visit especially with other historic venues like the Octavia hill museum in the area.Very limited parking and unless you are very lucky parking will most likely be a problem if you set your sat nav for the north brink ,you can drop off people right outside ,the nearest free parking is the Chapel Road car park a short walk away which is usually ok for spaces.Depending on the weather 2-3 hours should be enough to enjoy it.
