“Well preserved and interesting”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

An interesting place to visit. It really gives a good impression of how life was in the first half of the 20th century. Or at least for those of a certain social class! The central staircase area is very attractive. The gardens are also pleasant to explore although the trees have grown so much now that it is nothing like it was during the time the house was owned by the Landers. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.

“well worth a visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Read a review on here and had a look for myself. Its well worth the effort And it is like going into a time warp,The house, is as if the owner of the house has just gone out. I have been in many National Trust houses,but this is one of, the smallest and the most amazing a real Victorian/ Edwardian house.

“More than just an old house”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

On my recent visit to this Edwardian gem, I was fortunate enough to catch the end of the craft weekend, so not only was I able to view the almost untouched interior, but was able to see exquisite embroidery, lace-making and quilting being done, and also try my hand at doing it. The guides were exceptionally helpful and chatty, making you feel like an honored guest. A small property, but well worth a visit.

“A Victorian Treat”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We visited Sunnycroft, Saturday afternoon having been recommended to visit by our hostess at The Limes where we were staying for two nights. We were given a guide leaflet on arriving and told about timed tours around the house by a guide.. There are Maws tiles and gold medal fireplaces and delightful wallpapers to see. One of the best domestic Leek embroidery collections by Joan Lander is on view and the undoubted skill is undeniable. We spent a full two hours here and enjoyed every minute.
Be aware that if you are using a Sat Nav do not follow the Post code, follow the main road and look out for the sign at the road side. We used the post code and finished up in the estate behind Sunnycroft.
