“well worth a visit”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Beautiful little house well worth a visit, the feeling you get of actual people living in it. A lovely Gem. lovely grounds, it has a quaint little chapel too.. I to think its a pity the eating area is small but I heard it might be expanding.

“A little gem”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We have been to Dorset many times over the years and visited NT properties in the surrounding counties, this little gem is one we had missed. A beautiful little house with chapel and a wonderful garden. Pity the catering facility cannot be larger, but perhaps that would overwhelm everything else. We will be making a return visit on our next holiday in the area.

“Pretty gardens, good to see”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Beautiful place, and lovely little attached chapel. Gardens are wonderful, set out in 'rooms' so plenty to see. Very small refreshment area but overheard they are expanding in the winter. Well worth a visit if in the area.

“Unexpected Gem!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We visited three other Manor Houses and gardens in this area of Somerset and fell upon this one by chance after being recommended to go there by a lady at a cafe! It was by far my favourite of them all. The house, although small, felt like a real home and that the owners had just popped out for the day! Interesting artifacts, books, porcelain etc., It also has its own dear little chapel attached. However it was this GARDEN that took my breath away. Even in mid August the planting was divine. Deep, full and billowing herbaceous borders, better than any I had seen at the other properties including East Lambrook. Unusual roses and clematis growing over old stone walls. A garden of secret rooms too..every corner was an Ahhh moment for me.! They propagate something like 4000 plants each year here too. Highly recommend a visit
