  • I wasn’t expecting to learn so much about its history! It’s a very interesting place and I’m proud of NT to be looking after it! The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful! Would definitely recommend a visit. After going there, we went to Brill, a small village nearby, for some food! There’s a nice windmill on the top of the hill with amazing views around!
  • Visited in June for the Boarstall fete, it was lovely but the tower, which is a National Trust property is only open 5 Sunday's across the whole year!
