We bought our tickets for Paxton House online, an easy process. My wife found the details of the house and all we can say after our visit is, excellent!
The house is really quite something and it was interesting to see how the descendants of the house lived. The chippendale furniture is rather impressive too. We went on a tour of the house with our guide, Jim, who we have to say, was brilliant. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable, we'd thoroughly recommend if you visit to go on the tour. He made the tour entertaining, fun and we left with a good understanding of Paxton. Thanks Jim!
The gardens are also beautiful and we saw goldfinches and a great spotted woodpecker in the bird and squirrel hides.
A special mention to the ladies in the cafe too. They were so friendly and the food on offer was delicious. I had lamb hotpot (which was a special of the day) which reminded me of one my mum would make, it was so nice. My wife had cumberland sausage and jacket potato which was also very very good. We treated ourselves to a slice of victoria sponge each for after which was also tasty (home made - always a winner).
If you're in the area Paxton House is a brilliant place to visit. We spent four - five hours there and had a fantastic time. We'd have quite like to have left with a guidebook so we could have read more at home, but a very small gripe!
