Lovely old property which does need some work on re-interpretation which seemed rather dated, could be so much more informative and interesting with a refresh. Lovely garden. Small local museum interesting but again needs work. Didn't realise until we had paid that we could have...More

A fascinating building with great interpretations of the rooms, giving a realistic sight of tudor life, rather than the grand castles, etc. Friendly staff, a good book/gift shop, and an excellent cafe serving superb sandwiches, etc.

Anne of Cleves was married to King Henry VIII, who had a nasty habit of having his wives beheaded. Not so with this particular Anne, though. They seem to have separated amiably, and Henry gave her a couple of houses, such as this one. She...More

Enjoyed wandering through the tudor rooms, imagining what life was like. Really enjoyed the museum containing fire backs as we didn't realise there were so many types.Small walled garden to walk around. Friendly staff and small coffee shop.
