This is an Edwardian House, left in a time warp by Ms Lander who left it to the trust. Fabulous Morris wallpapers, Maws tiles and all the bits and pieces which make a house a home. The guides were very knowledgeable, and we also had a nice tea sitting on the verandah overlooking the croquet lawn. Yes, you can borrow the equipment if you fancy a game yourself!

Excellent visit, it was good to get a brief history at the start then went around the house at your own pace.
Some things on show had not been shown before so it was good to see
Very helpful staff

This is a lovely National Trust property, a gentleman's house and garden rather than an ancient aristocratic pile. The garden is a bit of a ramble but the croquet lawn (picnics permitted) and the lovely orchard laden with apples and damsons are well worth seeing, as are the enormous Wellintonia trees. House, garden and tea room are all enhanced by friendly, helpful volunteers. We did the garden tour and a guided tour of the house. Timed ticket entry gave us plenty of time for tea and cake in the traditional tea room - table cloths and vintage floral china added to the ambience - and the lemon cake is delicious. Well worth a visit but don't follow the route in their website - to use a Shropshire expression "it goes all round the Wrekin", so find a more direct route with a map or a satnav.
