An interesting house with much detail relating to the ancestors of George Washington. The gardens are small but certainly worth a walk round. Small car park. There is a tea room serving drinks and snacks. Worth stopping for.

This National trust property was very interesting and great for all the family, even the 2 year old enjoyed looking for the mice. Beautiful garden and a lovely tea room to sit out and enjoy the sun.

This is a small National Trust property. The Hall has a fascinating history; the garden is pretty, has a small play area so you could picnic with children. While you're there it's worth taking a stroll round Washington village as well.
