A fascinating place, a true haven from the war, especially the garden. The self guided tour was a little annoying, in particular it steers you away from a 20 minute video all about Tubby’s life and character which is in a corner off the introductory...More

We found this a very, very special place and learned a lot. A place where many soldiers received their first and last Communion. It was very touching to climb up to the attic chapel. A house offering solace before and after the front line. Simply...More

A well preserved slice of history complete with a cup of tea and a piece of bread pudding. Basically this was a temperance retreat from the war run by a chaplain.

The aura surrounding this house is palpable, the museum is small, but interesting, there is a film show as part of the tour, the museum as a small souvenir shop, the museum is closed on Mondays.
