The tour guide was amazing-funny, knowledgable and genuinely interested in informing her group. The National Trust has done a great job here and it’s a good way to spend a couple of hours.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the history of the houses very interesting. The houses were very atmospheric and all in all the hour and a half tour was more than worth the eight pound fee. Would definitely recommend visit again.
