I really enjoyed looking around this old building. It was full of character and charm. The old beams and well were fab. There are not many rooms about five. The stairs are steep and the gardenia small.

Well worth a look to get a glimpse into the past and see just how small rooms used to be! Information available on cards in each room to explain the objects on display.

Very small building with nooks and crannies to explore. A small garden to explore or sit in. A shop but no loos.

Very interesting National Trust property with a lovely garden well worth a visit. Very steep stairs to go upstairs so it would be difficult for anybody with mobility problems.
