I note some of the more negative comments relating to the cost of entry and the use of reproduction furniture. As Nation Trust members our entry was covered by our subscription. Due to their age and fragility these places require a great deal of maintenance...More

A rather small member of the national trust collection but worth a visit. Not sure the entrance fee of £5 plus is worth it, though as a National trust member We didn't have to pay. The building from the outside takes you back in time...More

We found this National Trust property as we explored Tenby on a rather dismal day. It absolutely fantastic, it started life as the home of a Flemish merchant. The guides are more than willing to tell you about it's history and the way the family...More
