Very interesting and animated tour of this Grade 1 listed building. The amount of work involved in rescuing this property is mind boggling, it is also a functioning family home, not a museum. The collection of musical instruments added to the interest of the house....More

A very different type of 'tour' with a start in what looks like Miss Haversham's dining room. With guided tour of this renovated property by the owner was a unique experience followed by tea/cakes and an organ recital.

Find it down long quite bumpy drive. Inside this extraordinary Greek revival (Latrobe) stone-built house lurk many surprises. Dynamic musical & historical tour with owner (ours was with the Musicians' Company) included seeing & hearing lots of different keyboards. Curiosities of many kinds all over...More
