Woolsthorpe Manor is a well preserved, quaint farm-house from the 17th century.
It's main draw is that this is the birthplace and family home of Sir Isaac Newton, and the apple tree in the grounds is what inspired his works on gravity.
It's exciting to witness this site, and am happy it's in the National Trusts hands so this is possible, but it's a small site and beyond the tree and the small manor house with some facts about Newton's life, there's nothing much else to see. I would definitely recommend a visit, and not to take anything away from the fabulous job the staff and National Trust are doing,but I wouldn't travel a great distance to visit.
Staff were friendly and helpful on the whole, the parking "attendant" slipped between friendly and rude at times, admission is reasonable.
There's a coffee shop/discovery center in the grounds, I didn't check out the discovery center area as there didn't seem to be much, but the coffee shop was refreshingly affordable. Toilet facilities are in a separate block near the entrance, clean and well maintained.
