Reviewed 6 April 2018

Being locals and members of the NT we visited again on Easter Monday.

Parking facilities very good.

We like the use of the old church as the entrance.

Staff/volunteers we encountered were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

Unfortunately due to the bad weather the café was very busy and we couldn't get a seat so went home for a cuppa and cake.

We did venture round the gardens, woodlands but had to give up due to the weather. We will definitely return in the Summer.

Thank Wasessa

Combined with a lovely walk from Ironbridge up to Benthall Hall, then back via Broseley on. Surprisingly sunny Easter Sunday.

Great walk through the woods, although we got a bit lost as trying to do the NT walk, but reversing the directions as we started from Ironbridge - ended doing 5 and a bit miles instead of 3.4, but it was lovely, so we didn’t mind and they don’t open the house until 1pm, so it’s just as well!

Lovely gardens and enjoyed an egg hunt there, then tea and scones outside (there was some inside seating, but not a lot and we didn’t realise until after). Inside the house is very nice and the staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. It’s not huge, so combining with a walk there and back made the day.

We’re members, so always visit the National Trust places whenever we’re on holiday.

A place I am going to revisit once the church reopens and the gardens look at their best.Easy to get to from M54 with plenty of parking. Good plan is to bring a packed lunch as packed out cafe only serves basic cake and drinks

Wonderful place and being on a smaller scale compared to the much larger NT properties, one feels able to absorb much more. The staff in each room where not only very knowledgeable but hugely enthusiastic.

Ignore the reviewers who have underrated this beautiful house. Their only beef seems to be that they have a dog and are bitter about the fact that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around it.

This place really is a little gem. The tea room provides just that - it is a tea and scones affair. Don’t turn up expecting full meal. The indoor facilities are limited. This is after all, a house, and not an IBIS hotel. There are, therefore, a limited number of seats available.

A good traveller tip would be be to read what’s available at the venue before you get there.

Life is about expectations. Expect not much and then you will always be pleasantly surprised!
