There isn't actually a great deal to see (apart from the apple tree from which the fruit supposedly fell!) but the sense of history comes over very well and you get a good idea of what life must have been like in the seventeenth century....More

Not an enormous amount to see and a little bit remote, but nevertheless well worth a visit. A great reminder of what Isaac Newton discovered, although the falling apple story may not be entirely true! The scientific exhibits are wonderful for kids of the age...More

Firstly, the house is very pretty and lovely to see inside and out and great to imagine what it would have been like for Newton living there with his family. But having arrived a few minutes before opening because we'd seen other people going in,...More

Nice farmhouse where Isaac Newton lived. Small car park but pretty setting. The National Trust have done a good job in presenting it. The barn is good got lots of hands on things for kids

Lovely day out. Friendly staff who are happy to talk and tell you all they know. The refrangibility of the place is well worth a detour.

This is a really interesting bit of history. Although the house does appear to be a bit sparse, it is probably correct for the time. I strongly suggest that the guidebook is bought before looking around and give yourself some time to read it. It...More

This is an attraction which appeals to all age groups. We enjoyed looking around the cottage and also trying out some of the scientific experiments. An interesting 15-minute talk was given about the apple tree and this involved the children in the group. Highly recommended.

Best to ring them before setting off. We went earlier this year and they had guided tours. They might have more going on as Summer approaches but always best to ring ahead and check.
Hi, At Grantham railway station , is there a taxi stand to take to Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth? How much would a taxi cost, for a family of four? Thanks

Yes there is a taxi outside of the station but it will cost approximately £20 from Grantham to the manor. Get a bus if you can as the bus station is walking distance from the train station.
