Visited with my 4 year old grandson and whilst I loved the history and authenticity he enjoyed comparing his modern life to how things were, dressing up, finishing the puzzle and climbing the stairs. Lovely staff on hand.

Pleased we visited and learned about the building. The guide talked us through using the 3D map model which was very interesting. A fine example of a fairly wealthy home.

An oasis of charm showing an example of a house some years ago. A small entrance fee but well worth it.
