Although the Christmas decorations have been in place a while. The house still looked lovely and very atmospheric. Lots of hard work. Admission is free but check opening times. Enthusiastic volunteers. Small with an interesting history, parking on road, very nice visit

Revolution House is a little gem, worth visiting for at least three different reasons. Firstly, because it is a lovely 17th century house, so would be worth visiting even if it had no other significance, if you like historical buildings. Secondly, it has a fine...More
