This is not quite what it seems. The building is old enough and was associated with the Cathedral Treasurer but the interiors you see, including the large hall, were the recreation of a wealthy 20th century businessman, Frank Green. But don't be put off. It is interesting for that reason alone as well as for the building itself. You don';t... More

An interesting diversion, easily added on to a visit to the Minster. A view into another time, with the cellar visit well worth booking although it's definitely not for the claustrophobic!

The architecture in this home is very unique with so much history and great stories about the owner and guests who stayed here. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly.

Have always wanted to visit the Treasurer's House but have never had time before. What a disappointment the three joined properties fitted ill and the whole place had a distinctly male feeling, austere and lacking in style. The whole visit was saved by the wonderful volunteers, knowledgeable, efficient. The "haunted cellar" trip was well presented by the Guide who gave... More

A first for me despite living only 30 miles away for more years than I care to remember. We headed straight for the basement café which was busy and serving really interesting food. Fortified, we toured this fascinating house which had evolved over the years from three adjoining buildings. The knowledgeable and friendly volunteers absolutely made the visit, but I... More

We were pleasantly surprised by how much there was to see in this property and what an interesting story lay behind it. The staff in the house were all very knowledgeable, helpful and enthusiastic. The cafe was I think the best one of all the NT properties we have visited - table service, friendly staff and a lovely peaceful atmosphere... More

To be honest I was blown away with this property , the lights were low, dark outside and the house was full of gorgeous Christmas decorations. Left me feeling very festive and the atmosphere was great. The staff were also fantastic there was someone in every single room to talk though the history and they all knew exactly what they...

Fascinating insight into the History of the Property and Character of Frank Green who bought the Property in 1897 in order to renovate restore and save the building along with his antiques art,and furniture which he used to make it his home. Now in hands of the National Trust being one of the first houses to be been handed complete... More
