Good for all the family

Lots to do and see. The day we went there were animals to pet and feed, games and rides for the children and a tour of the house.

Fantastic House from 1691 in great condition - really interesting to see how life was in those days. The entry ticket covers Downhill Demense and Mussenden Temple too, so good value if not a member of the National Trust.

We were in the area seeing Giants causeway. So we dropped in, we are so glad we did, the old thatched house shows how people once lived. In a well to do small house, demonstrates how simple people lived. This attraction is good to see as an add on.

Nearly went past it. needs a bit more signposting. This small thatched farmhouse set just as it was. A personal guided tour was fascinating and not too long. Well worth the stop off and free to National Trust members too.

Recently re-thatched, the property is delightful from the outside painted white with a small cottage garden. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the visit more fascinating. When it was acquired by the trust it was left the way it was in the 1970's. With it's rare cruck frame and musty smell you almost imagine you will find granny... More

Doesn't take long to go round your self guided tour with many interesting facts and well laid out. You can actually go round the whole of the property and it certainly showed me many things I had never seen before. Well kept and maintained and surprised it isn't more popular.

This is a small property compared to some of the National Trust places but "small is beautiful". Definitely worth a visit - the staff are friendly and most welcoming taking pleasure in showing the visitor around. There is no Cafe but that doesn't stop you having a coffee break in the most welcoming entrance area. We visited on a damp... More
