This was the home to Mr Morris famous for the Morris car brand but equally famous for the Nuffield health brand. He lived a very comfortable life but gave away millions of pounds by todays standards for health care. A beautiful home in a lovely...More

Items of interest were on display even before we entered the house. Lord Nuffield's Morris Minor was in the garage and a building next door housed the first "iron lung" which was used to help polio patients. The house was lovely, not too big but...More

This is a great time of year to visit the house and gardens. The bluebells are fantastic. What a perfect example of getting away from modern ideas of pretentious ostentation associated with wealth. The house retains the atmosphere of a family home and yet the...More
