Our 10 year old son loved this and was still talking about it several days later. The guides were helpful and the knowledge they gave was wonderful. Compact site. Good tea room. Lovely to visit.

Woolsthorpe Manor is quite small compared to some NT sites but it is very compact and well presented. The house is well laid out and the activity centre is excellent. But pride of place must go to the apple. To stand next to the exact tree that inspired Newton is quite amazing, even if the original tree has blown down... More

Really loved this place! It is so well presented, so well kept and so unpretentious that one almost feels as if Isaac Newton is still living there and working on his numerous science projects.A truly wonderful glimpse into history of the time and of his life there. We booked a Guided tour slot via email and were amongst a group... More

We went on a friday and enjoyed a conducted tour of the house. It is an interesting place and well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a good introductory video and the cafe, although small, has some fascinating hands on exhibits in the adjacent space. The famous apple tree is a photogenic stop after the... More

This is a small National Trust property that is well worth three hours of your time. The house itself is excellently presented and to be fully appreciated let one of the guides show you around. The outbuildings are interesting and the activity/ education centre is a must for adults and children. Last but not least there's that famous tree (the... More

This is not a stately home - it's better than that. You get the feel of the house of a fairly well off family from the 17th century and learn a lot about Isaac Newton. The Discovery Centre is worth a visit on its own. Cafe is basic so have a drink there and bring a picnic!

Great building just as it was when Isaac Newton Lived there. Great staff with very knowledgeable guides. Lovely to see the apple tree still bearing fruit. Great for families, schools and to inspire teen budding Scientists

This was for for me one of the more interesting NT places that we've been to. Whilst quite small. You feel that you are still part of the history of the building. The short introductory video is worth watching. One gets the feeling that Isaac's thought him a bit of a strange lad. The hands on set up in the... More

really good and the vibe/atmosphere is really positive, I learnt a lot but I still felt if I got something wrong it was ok and I wouldn't be judged and that is really cool. The staff were all very kind. I love this place would go again, very family and school friendly
