I usually have to be dragged kicking and screaming to this sort of thing, but the girlfriend loves it - so you know. Having said that - this was a slightly different kettle of fish to your run of the mill stately home. William Morris loved cars, gadgets and messing about with stuff. A Bill Gates of his era -...

Nuffield house was a small visit that we had together. The house is very well presented and full of Lord Nuffield's items (including some Ivory). We were intrigued to see the many clocks in the house. Outside the house is a nice garden as well as an Iron Lung Machine that was used to assist people breathing.

This is a pleasant building and grounds with informed and organised guides and volunteers . It is not bursting with history but has a pleasant feel and gives a flavour of the period 1930-1960. I think you would be able to tour the building and grounds in under an hour One guide gave a talk and summarised things very well... More

A very interesting house, with v enthusiastic guides. It was interesting to see the quite modest home of a multi billionaire, given Lord Morris's wealth, and to learn about the extent of his philanthropy. Recommended.

Well worth a visit to hear of the life and times of William Morris, probably the nearest we have to Henry Ford. House is a microcosm of 1950's living. Well done NT.

Such an interesting house in a stunning position. We went on one of the morning house tours with some very interesting and knowledgeable guides who told us so much about the life of Lord and Lady Nuffield and their incredible philanthropy. Pretty garden and lovely tea room. All very understated but fascinating.

Home of Lord and Lady Nuffield - Lord Nuffield being an icon of the British Motor Industry. Contains some very interesting artefacts including an iron lung purchased by Lord Nuffield for a local hospital. The garden includes an example of a round garden where fruit trees are trained to grow over the path on hoops.

This is not a large house but is lovely inside showing the gentle way of life of William Morris. The volunteers were very knowledgable and eager to talk about the house and the work of Lord Nuffield who gave a lot of his wealth to further health research which we all benefit from today

You might expect a magnate to have built another Blenheim, but this house is surprisingly modest. The whole experience is about Lord Nuffield and his family - and he seems to have been a truly magnanimous magnate. Genlty enthusiastic volunteer guides help.
