A private house, meeting place, Conspiracy against King Charles I. This relatively small house has it all. Well worth a visit.

Very disappointed by the fact that the museum was closed for no obvious reason whereas it should have been open. Not even a note on the door. And this being a NT property.

This is really worth visiting, a lovely national trust house with an interesting history. My partner loved dressing up in the adult sized costumes. Knowledgeable volunteers and a very informative talk on medicines and potions made our trip very enjoyable.
