You can only visit on a Saturday and Sunday as it is somebodies home but we were lucky as it was open when we were in the area. The house is not large but the resident shows you around and informs you about the History and Architecture. Also he repairs old carpets so looking at his work room is a bonus.

A Very pretty and interesting National Trust Property. It has a colourful history and the house and adjacent church are well worth a visit. Guided tours are excellent

We were only able to view the exterior because we visited outside of the very limited opening hours. The gardens to the front of he poperty are very well maintained. The whole made for a good photo opportunity.

We travelled some way to visit this building on the only open day showing on the National Trust website – Sun 24 Sept 2017, 2-5pm. At the gate, there was simply a sign saying ‘closed’. Apparently a number of others had done exactly the same as there was a paper behind the sign with various notes expressing similar disappointment & frustration. We added our own brief comment. I realise that things may have happened to prevent the opening, but when folk have the privilege of tenanting a NT property they have to accept the responsibilities which go with it: this must include opening at the (few) agreed times & not putting others to a great deal of inconvenience. This surely must include arranging for others to act as guides if the tenants were indisposed. The building itself looked quite interesting, but we never got to find out. If you plan to visit this site I suggest you email or ring ahead & check they are actually open.

A grade 2 listed building situated about 200 yards from the more famous Abbey. There is only roadside parking available and the house is only open on Sunday and Monday afternoons, so plan ahead. You'll need to ring the house bell and wait for the tenant to open the door. The guided tour lasts about 15-20 minutes so the wait is usually very short and the small garden is charming. Once inside there are only three rooms on two levels to look at and to be honest we spent more time talking about the Somerset levels and their recent flooding problems than the history of the house.
