As others have said, this is not in the same league as Lullingstone or Fishbourne, but it is interesting and there is plenty of information provided. Various children's activities were generally quite imaginative, although the quiz possibly needs a re-write, as our 10 year old,...More

This is a great little visit - especially for a rainy day. The Roman bathroom is very interesting and the comprehensive info on the boards explains how it all worked. The house is only small, but it's well laid out and I liked little touches...More

This Roman Villa is tucked away (not very well signposted) in amongst a housing estate. There are some walls still visible and a couple of sections of mosaics along with the usual cut through of hypercausts and lead piping below the floors of the rooms....More
