Nice small house. Good information on Newton. Even the Apple tree can be admired! Well worth a visit. Knowledgable guides, like all NT properties.

Keen and welcoming staff. Simple cafe with drink and cake, nothing complicated. The learning facility takes precedence over the cafe.

Lovely peaceful setting, interesting house and content. Lovely afternoon visit but not really an all day place. My 7 year old grandson found the science experiments fascinating.

Not a big place, so limited numbers at some times. Contact them to check before setting out. It's an odd mixture of 17th century social history, science museum style exhibition and activities, a famous apple tree, and Isaac Newton. My wife really took to the...More

A great place to visit for all the family for both the history and the scientific side. There is the science "barn" if you like where the cafe is that is full of interactive activities to aid learning too. Sadly even though we visited in...More

We spent a good 2 hours looking around the house and garden as well as visiting the exhibits. Would be good for children that wanted to learn about some basic physics. Parking was easy and we walked to the local church where Newton had carved...More
