A lovely house that feels incredibly secluded given it's location and surroundings, but that just adds to the charm being so calm and quiet while you explore the grounds. The... read more

Excellent visit! Enthusiastic and knowledgeable room guides explain the history of the house and church, and beautiful gardens to explore. Plenty of countryside walking from here, as well. Well worth an afternoon of anyone's time. Two points which visitors should be aware of (neither of which are intended as criticism in any way!): there are only two loos, and the... More

Very informative visit with staff readily on hand to provide background information. The garden was just as beautiful as the house, with information outlining the different trees which made it very interesting.

A lovely house that feels incredibly secluded given it's location and surroundings, but that just adds to the charm being so calm and quiet while you explore the grounds. The house and church though both small have some features of interest - particularly the house with the ill fitting panels in one room or the long dining table used to... More

It's about 4 years since we visited so were surprised by how much more of the house is now on view. The addition of the whole of the upstairs meant it was like visiting a different house! Lovely gardens, a long (and short) walk available through the surrounding areas and a tea room that is actually in the main hall!... More

Wonderfully informal and domestic atmosphere in this small, quiet Jacobean jewel. Special experience.

Smaller NT property but never the less lots of character and surprises. Newly acquired church is fantastic. Well worth a visit especially when the sun is shining.

A great old house, built in the 16th century and preserved with some ancient furniture. We enjoyed the visit and it's worth tagging on to an Ironbridge visit if you have time.

Renewed by NT membership to enjoy special walks with my new dog. Benthall Hall close to home so we tried walking there this weekend. Unfortunately dog access is limited but the major devastation was therefore no access to tea room! Disappointed. Website explains access to parkland and of course at other local properties the access includes outdoor tea room facilities.... More

Very nice house to visit. The owners of the house came home whilst we were there so we could not see all of the house. Access to all areas were as from March onwards. The staff were very pleasant and helpful

This is a small National Trust property, "hidden away" but full of interest. Knowledgeable volunteers are interesting and enthusiastic. There are lots of odd things to see from many different periods of history and lots of questions to ask...why is there an old covered-up tiled floor? why does the wood panelling not quite fit?... who lived here?... There is a... More
