“Well worth visiting.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Well worth visiting. Full of interesting artefacts about smuggling and if you are a Daphne Du Maurier fan you will not be disappointed. The lovely lady who sells the tickets is local and has the most wonderful accent and is very knowledgable about the area as she was born on a farm close by a few years ago!!!!

“Extensive collection of artefacts”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

On entering you can sit in on the historical theatre show and it briefs you on what you are about to view in the museum, with extensive artefacts on view,a wonderful step back in history

“loved it!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

right from the entrance where we were greeted by the local guide, fantastic woman. The museum was very interesting and spend a lot of time there, including watching a small film at the end of the tour. Didn't realise how many books Daphne DM wrote. Learned a great deal about smuggling - shame more people weren't in there although it is not a huge place so it would have been more crowded and less pleasant for us if there had been!
