We have joined the National trust and decided to check out the Old Manor. Its one of the National Trust more basic buildings but worth a look. It also has a small garden and a nice church. The lady there was very friendly and informative.

A delightful short visit as we arrived just half an hour before it closed. What a beautiful church ! The guide certainly knew his stuff about the Manor, very knowledgeable. Check it is open before going as opening times are limited.
