It became clear as we went around the House that despite being a multi-millionaire, Lord Nuffield was very careful with his money and was anxious to avoid waste wherever possible, which makes a refreshing change. As others on this site have said, the house is...More

Worth a visit if NT members. We weren't planning to stop but were glad we did. Interesting house & learning about the family. Nice gardens to walk around.

We were very impressed with the house, as unlike many NT houses it was more like as home you could move straight into. The history of the place and Lord Nuffields lack of ostentation wa refreshing. The gardens also are nice to walk aroiund too....More

This was like stepping back in time to my Grandparents home. The NT have done a great job of preserving this modest home and collection. Watch the till prices in the cafe ... we were charged £4.50 for £2.50 sausage rolls. Error was soon rectified.

House and gardens loved. Catering appauling. Limited choice indeed, therefore no excuse. Bacon sandwiches cold, hard. Unedible. Tea made with lukewarm water. Awaiting response from our complaint to the trust. Take your own food.

A very interesting house with many artefacts relating to Lord Nuffield and his life and work. It is not very large but very nicely presented. Gardens are pretty but quite small. This is not really a place for children but worth a visit otherwise.

Having nursed at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre many years ago, I was so interested in Lord Nuffield's generosity to medicine. My husband was an engineer at his factory in Cowley and the photos and artifacts brought back many memories. The highlight for me was the...More

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
