An historic and beautiful building in lovely grounds. Delightful cafe with huge sandwiches. Good gift shop. House itself small and with great connections to USA. Guided tours no longer available, but helpful and informative attendants. Village also worth a wander around

Visited here on a trip to Banbury and glad we did. The ancestral home of Washington family and set on the lovely village location outside of Banbury. Beautiful building full of history and only a modest admission charge.
