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.

A well run NT House with friendly staff and quite knowledgeable. Child friendly and a pleasure to go around, parking is limited to road parking but you don't need all day to go around it, well worth a visit.
