Nuffield Place is a surprisingly modest house, for a man who was at one point the richest man in the world. The house interior has been set out, by the National Trust, as it would have been in the thirties - anyone older than 60...More

This is a very modest house for a very wealthy man. Set out as it would be in the thirties it is not exceptional as a building but the story of Lord Nuffield’s life is very unusual and is told well by the guides. As...More

Was left feeling that Nuffield College’s White Elephant had been transferred to the National Trust. Interesting aspects - Lutyens-style brickwork and some windows reminiscent of Hampstead Garden Suburb; Gloriously 1930s tiling and bathroom fittings, authentically horrifying iron lung, but somehow a hollow experience.

A small house, especially for such a wealthy man, with a strong 1930s atmosphere. If you like that period, it will be a delight; if not, it's a little underwhelming. Surrounded by pleasant gardens. Track to the car park a bit bumpy and full of...More

Quite a modest house, compared to some other National Trust properties, but a reflection of the man who lived there: William Morris/ Lord Nuffield.We visited on a Saturday morning, turning up just before 11 and had a walk around the garden before our timed entry...More
