This house is magnificent and, as others have stated, is well worth the £3 entrance fee especially for anyone interested in history. It's a one off experience to see how the Tudors and Elizabethans lived which will quite surprise you as it sure did me!...More

This one is a must visit. The wood panelling and build of this wonderful old building should not be missed. They filmed Nell Gwen there and the rickety old 4 stories are truly worth the £3 entry charge which all goes into restoration.

What an amazing place... This is privately owned home, cared for by an elderly gentleman that lives in 1 room of the house in the hopes of preserving this grade 2 listed building. It's amazing that the building has been virtually untouched and boasts many...More
