Very interesting and informative visit. Very helpful staff I was pleased and surprised to be given a very comprehensive guide to borrow, which explains details of each room. A really nice place to go. Different because it has been a family house, rather than a stately home.

I had wanted to visit this place for a number of years. It is only open 2 days a week. It is a very imposing building from the outside with its tudor beams. The building in parts is around 500 years old. The kitchen is amazing with so many objects of interest to see. The dairy is also very interesting with the old cheese press. Upstairs there are various rooms to see relating to Samuel Crompton including his spinning wheel. We had a amazing guide a lady with red hair. Who told us loads of information about this amazing building. Well worth a visit. Limited parking.

Good parking across the cobbled road from the hall. Curators very welcoming and informative gave us a booklet to take with us as we walked round which gave a comprehensive description of the rooms and contents. The lady also explained the link with Lord Leverhulme which we weren't aware of and how he funded the restoration and the gift of the property to the people of Bolton. As we went from room to room there were many links to Sam Compton with relevant exhibits. Really liked how well lit all the rooms were and the provision of seats to sit on to sit on while admiring the rooms. Few of the floors were level but this is to be expected in a building of this age. The rooms are over several levels but all staircases had good sturdy bannisters and the steps weren't steep. A very enjoyable visit hope to come again in better weather so we can have a look round the outside in better weather. There is no charge to visit. Not many souvenirs available

Saw this on a map and decided to call in, especially as it was free. So glad I did - it was charming. Not too big to visit on a whim, but full of interesting artefacts and genuinely helpful information boards to complement the guide pack. The staff were excellent - friendly without being intrusive, incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and happy to answer questions. A fascinating treasure trove of local history, presented well for all ages. There's enough to read that you can spend a while there, or just go round and soak up the atmosphere. Deserves to be much better known.

This attraction used to be just ok- but now with a few added touches- a guidebook and a quiz, we all had a lovely time. Also explored the gardens, which was another interesting way to see the imposing exterior architecture
