“Worth twenty minutes if passing.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Lovely little village. House is in the grounds of church. No audio guide and minimal information. Am an EH member but would have asked for a refund if I had paid.

“Delightful historic building”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

There is more to see than you might expect in this delightful historic building. Once the wing of a palace used by successive Bishops of Lincoln when they travelled through their diocese, it was converted into an almshouse early in the 17th century to provide accommodation for 12 men and two women. On the ground floor there is little to see other than a series of small, empty, low-ceilinged rooms. The loftier first-floor rooms include a communal hall and the women’s rooms, one of which has been furnished as it would have been when occupied. The top floor’s main interest is the roof timbers.

The Bede House lies in the shadow of Lyddington’s imposing Church of St Andrew, which is also worth a visit.

“Pleasant if compact”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Suggested by another EH property staff as in the area.
Situated in great village next to a church. Very picturesque views. Was quite a small property with a handful of rooms to look around. Garden nice enough. Didn't take long to look around. Not really history buffs but im sure there is a interesting history to it.
No facilities to speak of but to be expected.
Didnt pay any entrance fee as EH members so couldnt comment entrance fee value for money.
Was nice as a passing interest if in the area but wouldnt make a special trip to visit.

“Interesting - but could be more so”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Visited with friends and thought that the building was very interesting with a long history. But, as with most English Heritage properties, the interior looks so bare. They realy need to add some more to make it of interest to the younger generation.
