An assault on the senses. I have been five times to this house, and on each visit I see something that I missed on the time before. The spring and summer visits are wonderful but for sheer exuberance, go at Christmas time. I guarantee even Mr. Scrooge would be converted! As for Paul (Mr Selfridge springs to mind) he is... More

What an amazing place! What lovely hosts - Paul's tour was fascinating and entertaining (despite the jokes - ha, ha, ha). We were a group of six from Cardiff who drove up to this beautiful house on a stunning crisp and cold day to enjoy a unique and brilliant tour of the house which was decorated fro Christmas. When I... More

Visited the Hall with friends after seeing this on a TV show. Not one thing has been missed in this historic, collector and crafter's paradise. From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out we were amazed by the collections, atmosphere and welcome. Paul, the host is a genial gent and his wife and her helpers are... More

Having visited many attractions all over the world I personally found this to be the best ever, the attention to detail is outstanding, the hosts are charming and charismatic. Excellent value for money and sure it will be equally beautiful and interesting at other times of the year, can't wait to find out!

As described during our visit! Actually, it was a superb day out. The detail was amazing, and the work done over the last 19 years was unbelievable. Hats off to Paul and his good lady. This is truly a one-of-a-kind place to visit. The love lavished on this house is apparent in every inch of the building. Paul was a... More

An extremely enjoyable place to visit when in need of some Christmas spirit. We were the 'awesome' family and we had an amazing time. They had thought of everything, most of which was homemade. A very interesting and amusing house to visit with Paul, the owner, who had a wicked sense of humour.

Wow! You really must add this place to your bucket list. All 52 rooms will have you spellbound and just when you think it cannot get any better, it will and does. You are actually walking around a hall still lived in by the family. Paul the owner was our guide, very interesting and excellent humour. Paul, you should have... More

Went yesterday on a WI trip. 27 of us. We were shown round by the owner, the lovely Paul with his wacky sense of humour. We had a hot buffet in the hall first served by Fingers and Forks which was lovely and then started our tour. The house is BEAUTIFUL and all the rooms were decorated in a different... More

An excellent WI trip with 25 of us today. Such a special place to visit. Unique in fact. Privately owned and much loved by it's owners, they have turned this house into an amazing place. 52 rooms, each with a different theme at Christmas. We were honoured to have the lovely husband show us around and give us a very... More
