A very interesting NT property. Although you can visit the garden & cafe when you wish, the house is only accessible by guided tour. These can’t be booked prior to arrival, so best to come here (bookings are opposite on the other side of the road to the arched entrance to the property) first as you get to Worcester and get yourself booked in. Our guide (Karen) was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Had a very nice lunch at the Cafe.
A very strange and interesting tour of a building that really isn't what it seems. Don't expect the standard Tudor house experience. Our tour guide was amazing and had so many stories and much fascinating information to share. Sorry I can't remember her name!
