The best volunteers I have met at a NT property... Very knowledgeable,friendly and enthusiastic..The house is really interesting _ full of pre Raphaelite art. I think embroidery lovers would enjoy the many examples of fine needlework. We had a half hour tour of the archaeology of the house ( this does not happen every day) The Mander family decorated the... More

I love how there are so many original features and so well preserved. Lovely day out and hope to visit before Christmas to see the house all decorated. If not, will definitely return to see the gardens in the summer. Highly recommended.

I have never been to a National Trust property with such friendly and knowledgeable staff. The house is like a time capsule and has some wonderful art. You could easily spend a day at this property. It is also open when other properties have closed for winter

This house and gardens is a great example of Victorian architecture and interior design. It was good to be able to see the servants areas and kitchens and get a feel of how people of this era lived. The gardens are formal but at this time year lack any colour, but make up for this in its informality.

Came here recently with my husband, step daughter and my mom and we had a wonderful day! I haven't been here since i was small considering it is only 30 minutes away! Loved how they had activities for the children, really kept my step daughter entertained and it was nice to see so many children running around outside and playing.... More

This was the second time I have visited and unfortunately my previous trip was in January and this one in November so still no chance to really enjoy the gardens. More of the house is open at the moment and the extra bits are really good. Very interesting how the "new" house was put together in the art deco style.... More

No better place to meet friends, enjoy lounging in the garden, or to indulge in a slice of cake. A great spot for a picnic too :)

Wightwick is, as visitors soon discover, not what it pretends to be and is not as old as it first appears. Built in the late 19th century by the Mander family (Mander paints) it sits adjacent to the original Manor house which as Theordore Mander's business flourished the need to entertain and show of his wealth grew. The house was... More

First time at this house and very impressed. Opened at 12 and quite dark interior but little as it would have been when in use. Felt lived in and the rooms were accessible and the staff very informative. Ceilings, furniture and walls all spectacular and would recommend a visit. the upstairs was a little lighter in decoration and again showed... More

Not an imposing entrance off the A454...the wooden gates could do with some refurbishment...but the long drive leads to ample parking and winds its way between lawns and woodland. The reception 'hut' was staffed by eager volunteers and maps, guides and answers to questions were provided. The entrance charge was quite hefty for non-members of the NT. The short stroll... More

Bigjohn2016 has written an excellent summary of what there is to see and do at Wightwick - Thanks BigJohn! I just want to clarify that whilst we encourage photography in the house and provide lots of places to sit down (look at for the little cushions with cast on) most the collection is original and very fragile so the only...
