Absolutely brilliant tour of this 400 year old Cotswold Manor House. Its fascinating history completely brought to life by 3 members of the family. All had different stories to tell and filled your imagination as to the house's past. Well worth a visit!

The tour takes about 1 + 3/4 hours. Some children love it and are glued to the commentary whether it is me or my brother George guiding. Actually I will not be guiding that afternoon as I'm going to an AGM. It is not an... More

Hello Kazzy, we close at the end of September for our pre-advertised openings of Thursday and Sundays. Let me know when you are about and if we have a group booked in for a tour I could perhaps add you to that.
