Oh this place is great! You just have to visit. Open to all about April time around Easter. They put a lot of things on for the children. A National trust property it was owned in the 1700's by the Parminter Sisters who never married and made a lot of the house themselves with shells collected locally. The sun moves... More

Just the most delightful NT house I've visited . The views from the many windows is fantastic. . So clever to think of having a house that wherever you sit you can be in the sun . The shell room is amazing and all the collections the sisters occupied themselves with are lovely . A small house in comparison to... More

A lovely place to visit. The seashell gallery is a work of art. A nice walk around the gardens with great views of the estuary..

The Seashell gallery has to be seen to be believed, but the whole house is a treasure trove. The Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly and the tearoom is gorgeous! Well worth a visit.

Nice visit to this unusual house i would say that the activity of finding pumpkins was entertaining apart from stepping in dog poo! the prize of a small cardboard cutout was also a bit cheap for the £1.50 charge per person that said the house was very interesting to look round the views are great and we all liked looking...

Very Interesting and unusual building. Worth a visit even though I think it is a little expensive. The guides in each room who apparently arevoulenteers are very knowledgeable

Such an amazing place. A 16sided house who would of thought that! Looks small from the outside but very deceiving! Love the idea of doors in walls we would all have so much space. Loved the shell collection. Such a lovely visit and a must for anyone with a history fix.

I had never visited here before despite living in the area for most of my life!! I saw that there were Halloween activities for children to do over half-term so it was a great excuse to finally visit!! We decided to do the pumpkin trail and it was great fun for all of us as it made us walk all... More

Most NT houses are bigger and grander, with larger grounds. La Ronde is relatively tiny but more than makes up for it. Fascinating history, love all the corners for exhibiting / storing their treasures, clever use of the central space which also communicates with each room, at least one room will always be in sun, the views etc. And then...
