Containing the original interiors, furniture, decorations and items from the period, the house is a veritable time-capsule. Some of the things visitors can see include a 19th century vacuum cleaner, art and craft items made by family members, items from their grocery shop, the servants bells and Workshop Guardian newspapers from the 20’s. There are also gardens to view with an orchard and a greenhouse containing a collection of cacti. Admission to the house is only by timed ticket booked in advance.
