Churches and castles from the medieval era are common in England; not so for medieval houses. This is a rare, albeit slate, medieval survivor. Stabilized and restored by the National Trust to several different periods of the house's existence. Enjoyed climbing up to the old maid's "shelf" and seeing the kitchen area. Good information on restoration work. Nice, small garden... More

Well worth a visit . Some of the contents data back to the 1600 'so. It is filled with history and has a beautiful garden

The outside of this historic building is fascinating and in some respects defies gravity, particularly the undulating roof. It has a unique style all of it's own and there is evidence of many additions to the original structure, albeit completed with the utmost sympathy. The internal aspects are in some ways a little disappointing being a mismatch of furniture and... More

This post office, looks so good from outside, you would not think it was a post office, not sure after a vist that has changed, but a vist is well worth it. Some lovely old rooms, mind your heads ! The back garden is really nice to. National Trust own it so members are free.

Quite small but worth a visit, very interesting. Not really aosteoporosis ffice but a room is laid as a post office would have been. The history of the building is interesting.

We enjoyed a good hour looking around The Old Post Office, so interesting and only £4 per adult, unless you're a National Trust member. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the garden.

What a great old building maintained for us by the trust. Full of interesting building styles and informative leaflets about the building, its uses and construction dates and methods

As a post office the property is unsurprisingly pretty small. That's not to say it's not worth seeing as it is a quirky little building to see if in the area - it just wouldn't be something to make a trip out of the way to visit. The decision to make the focus of presentation about words and their origins... More
