“National Trust property”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

This is a wonderful National Trust property with the added advantage that it is next to the Cathedral and ex Prime Ministers Ted Heath's house so you could easily spend the best part of a day here.
As you would expect, the house is very well maintained and of great interest. The volunteers were friendly and very knowledgeable about the previous owners.

“Jane Austen and all that!”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Located in the Close with famous Green (in many TV dramas) just in front. The elegant interiors, knowlegeable staff/volunteers and special exhibitions and also a fabulous cottage style garden with croquet. Do stop for a cup of tea and perhaps a cake. This is a National Trust Property and a entrance fee is payable. Very limited close parking so use city parking locations and walk there and around the close....................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

“A gem”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

This house has such a warm atmosphere you wish you could move in right away. It gives a good picture of what many of the interiors of the houses in the Close must have been like. A quiet garden and there are refreshments too.

“So so as NT properties go”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Popped into Mompresson House as have just become National Trust members.

The garden was absolutely fantastic and beautifully done but to be honest the house was reasonably grand, but not really a great deal to write home about in terms of interesting things to look at.

With the £1 guide you can whizz through it i about 20 minutes, which if I had paid full price I would have thought it poor value for money.

“Beautiful House”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

What a lovely house to visit. You get a wonderful sense of contentment inside and the rooms are impressive. Would recommend this outstanding National Trust to everyone. It also has a little tea-shop with yummy home-made cakes!
