The idea of Elizabethan recognition of the needs of wounded and old soldiers is attractive and one can see how this place suited the purpose, and it oozes history

This incredible building, which never was a hospital, it well worth a visit. They receive no public funding to maintain the ancient timber framed buildings and the friendly.helpful staff do a marvellous job.

We thought that this 'hospital' which never actually was a hospital was delightful. Its story/history was fascinating. The garden was a gem too. We didn't get time to sample the cakes on offer at the tea room but they looked very good.
