Loved the house - what a unique place, unlike any museum I have been to before. Really fascinating and we easily spent 45 minutes in silence just staring at everything. Appeals very much to the nosey who like to look around how other people live, but with a time traveller twist. Only downsides are that other annoying people kept talking (please enforce the silence more severely); the signs around the house were patronising (yes, we are getting how this house works, stop telling us we don't); and some parts are a little shabby (you can tell the difference between period shabby and just things that have worn down through all the people staring at them). Overall, definitely a must see as there is not another place quite like this!

A unique experience and well worth the admission price. Difficult to describe (I said it was unique); it's a bit like your arrival has startled and scared away the ghosts of the Jervis's. The rooms aren't huge (a comment, not a criticism) like all similar houses so that limits numbers. However there's a lot to see and take in in each room and it's a visit best not rushed. If you visit I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Absolutely brilliant! A real piece of living history. The attention to detail is amazing, like stepping back 300 years. All museums should be done this way, if it were possible. Highly recommended.
