Having been to National Trust places, which now seem really sanitised, hovering up the atmosphere, Milton Manor House clearly offers the opposite. The family and house are full of charisma, charm and the house is what one would expect from a stately home which finds...More

We didn't know there is a limited opening time every year. Just walked in and an old man kept shouting 'Get out! This is a private garden!' Don't go, you're not welcome there.

Breath in some history,relax into a real home, faded elegance maybe but so real. The garden is excellent, the animals roam free and are very friendly. Everyone you meet will be friendly and informative. The house tour is great, sit and touch if you wish,...More
