We have visited quite a few National Trust properties and this is one of my favourites. While it isn’t as grand or as old as some of the other NT properties, it is just as fascinating. It is like walking into a time capsule with...More

What a lovely and interesting place! Lord Nuffield was certainly a generous man, and seeing the Iron Lung was a little bit traumatic - realising people used them back in the day and remembering where it all started. A must see, the house is really...More

Nuffield Place was our first stop on our National Trust Weekend, and what a find. The word Nuffield brings to mind the private hospitals but we now know it's a whole lot more. Lord and Lady Nuffield what amazing people. William Morris, a man of...More

This NT property is surprisingly modest for the home of a very wealthy man...Lord Nuffield founder of Morris Motors. He rose from a childhood fascination with bicycles to having a small cycle repair shop and then to starting his main business. The house is charming,...More

Surprisingly small house, tucked away in woods between Henley and Oxford and only acquired by NT in 2011. Very typically furnished in 1930's style and left exactly as Lord Nuffield died in the early 60's. Volunteers are enthusiastic and point out interesting details in the...More

It became clear as we went around the House that despite being a multi-millionaire, Lord Nuffield was very careful with his money and was anxious to avoid waste wherever possible, which makes a refreshing change. As others on this site have said, the house is...More

Worth a visit if NT members. We weren't planning to stop but were glad we did. Interesting house & learning about the family. Nice gardens to walk around.

We were very impressed with the house, as unlike many NT houses it was more like as home you could move straight into. The history of the place and Lord Nuffields lack of ostentation wa refreshing. The gardens also are nice to walk aroiund too....More

This was like stepping back in time to my Grandparents home. The NT have done a great job of preserving this modest home and collection. Watch the till prices in the cafe ... we were charged £4.50 for £2.50 sausage rolls. Error was soon rectified.

House and gardens loved. Catering appauling. Limited choice indeed, therefore no excuse. Bacon sandwiches cold, hard. Unedible. Tea made with lukewarm water. Awaiting response from our complaint to the trust. Take your own food.
