Stopped in here on a whim, not sure what to expect and it's terrific. So nice to stumble on such a delightful small museum with such interesting things. Great staff - very friendly and helpful and clearly like what they're doing. Lots of tools, firebacks,...More

As many have written already: Anne never lived here; so, well advertised... However, a visit is worthwhile, if you have visited the castle first and bought a combined ticket (only the house is a bit too expensive...). Most beautiful is the garden, which displays a...More

This is a house with a lot of history although Anne of Cleves may never have visited herself. There are 2 main rooms apart from the Hall, the bedroom and the kitchen. We bought the guidebook but actually there is plenty of information in the...More

This wonderful house should not be missed. It's history through the ages is amazing. The entry cost is very reasonable and everything in the house is well-explained. The incredibly cheap little tea room and garden is an added plus.
