You need a guide to understand fully this site. Cradled in the woods, this villa was only discovered in 1864 by a gamekeeper. Since it has undergone major renovation with a brand new building to protect the colourful mosaic floors. Somehow I felt it needed...More

Ruins of Roman Villa clearly show the scale of the original buildings. Some excellent mosaic floors and well-preserved Roman baths. Plenty of info boards and audio guides available but join one if the free guided tours if you can - ours was excellent.

The remains of the Roman villa which have been fully excavated and restored are wonderful. However, this is quite a small area and there's not an awful lot else for the price. Thank goodness we had our National Trust cards so didn't have to pay...More

Amazing floors, great information and small museum. If you are lucky enough to meet "Dr Quintus" you will find his talk very interesting. Activities for children too.
