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 ticket at 11:20. Our guide: Tony Boffin was extremely knowledgeable about the man and his philanthropic deeds. It really brought the visit to life. On the guided tour you do not visit all the rooms, so we went back into the house after a walk through the woodlands and a snack lunch. The rest of the rooms in the house open at 1:00pm.
I would echo some comments about the cafe, in that it is really small, not very well laid out and has a skeleton staff which meant a wait for food. Come on NT, this needs sorting out. However, the sandwiches we had were freshly prepared and quite filling.
