The volunteers here are TERRIFIC. They really help to bring the story behind this interesting and impressive home to life. The place is set up exactly as it was when the owner of the home had it while he lived there. Pretty eccentric guy. Ask about the tiny nails on the floor under some of the furniture. Great for a quick stop if you're near the minster.
Lovely place to visit. There is a Lego toys trail for the kiddies, and of course for grown ups, if that takes your fancy. I find having something out of the ordinary to look for, means I pay more attention to the other parts of the building.
Excellent place staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Fabulous tea room coffee cqke beautiful. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there will visit again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you
Thought we'd pop in for a quick look and found it to be much bigger and more interesting than expected. A really unusual place. Tea rooms in the cellar really appealing. Will go back again probably for a more leisurely visit.
Wonderful staff, gorgeous gardens and plenty to see. What better way to spend 2 hours? Staff were only to happy to answer questions about the furniture and other exquisite items. A must see. Thoroughly recommend
