Nice little national trust place to visit This is a small national Trust house, one of the first donated to them in 1918. The grounds are small but well kept. In side it is nice as you can actually touch thing. Tour guided at 12 & 12.15. Otherwise is is self guided. There is an audio visual before going into the house. Good for all age groups.
Quite interesting visit although it's a small town site with limited gardens and outside space. The rooms are well dressed and there is a quiz for the kids. Some of the volunteers recreate old recipes in the kitchens and do tasting sessions on a Sunday. However, we found that the house was pretty over staffed- two volunteers in some rooms which felt a little uncomfortable, especially in the kitchen where we were encouraged to taste the food but had two volunteers supervising us and engaging us in conversation whilst we were chewing. I'd have been happier to pay for the tasting and take a plate of food out into the garden or eat it in the cafe. The drawing room upstairs is a little confusing I think for kids, as there are playing cards and a chess set on the table which they are encouraged to play with, but other things that they aren't allowed to touch and get told off for touching. It might make more sense to have one "hands on" learning room away from anything too precious.
