A neat thing to see. A bit of History. They have redone the place well and the grounds nice. A plaque to read. Places to sit. A bit of a hard work walking for some. Too bad it was not open and did not have opening hours on it. You could look through the windows.

We often walk by the Woodchester Villa and are very excited by the renovation that have been done to the Villa. The Villa is a very special building and we are very pleased that Bracebridge has restored it. It really is a lovely old home to look at and hopefully one day will be open to the public.
