Although smaller than Fishborne, I think the mosaics were more intact. The place could benefit from an injection of cash to bring the facilities up to date but as a private concern they have done so well to preserve what is there.

Went along for a spontaneous trip with the kids- 7 and 5 yr olds. The most impressive part were the mosaics as there are several. Feels a bit like a tardis as the display areas are bigger than they look from the outside. Limited onsite...More

Small Roman villa set in superb countryside. Some wonderful mosaics and great information. Small tea room. Great value at only £6 entry fee but wont take too long to walk round.
