Visited with no real idea of what to expect, but found this to be a real gem of a place. The enthusiasm of the National Trust volunteers brought the house, and the life of William Morris, to life in a fascinating way. Would definitely recommend.
We are members of the National Trust & look to justify the membership fee by visiting NT locations whenever we are in the area. This was one of the smaller properties we have visited, but was nevertheless very interesting, due to the previous residents background & important contribution to the country. Only a short visit but worthwhile.
Although this is a relatively small National Trust property it is well worth visiting to discover more about William Morris & his life. The staff were helpful & enthusiastic & I enjoyed finding out more about the Nuffield Foundation. The cafe is too small & cramped which is a shame.
A superbly homely National Trust property. Don't miss the introductory talk - it puts it all into context. So much we didn't know about Lord Nuffield - what a great philanthropist, he certainly did great deeds with his money, just like Bill Gates (Just wish more of the wealthy in the world had their attitude) Highly recommended

The house itself felt a lot more homely than most National Trust properties and you really got a sense of the... 更多

This may be a smaller national trust property but it is just as interesting as many larger houses. There is do much content left behind by the owners that you feel they have only just stepped out of the property. Well kept gardens and lovely tea room and gift shop. Very pleasant and helpful volunteers on hand to answer any... 更多
It really was an inspiration to understand the story behind Lord Nuffield, amazing what he achieved in his life. We enjoyed looking around the house, seeing the furniture from this period and Lady Nuffield's car. It was near the end of the day but still nice to look around the gardens as well.
Although not as big as some National Trust locations Nuffield Place is certainly worth a visit. The house tells the story of William Morris of Morris car fame and it is a house so 'lived in' you feel the man himself could walk through at any moment. If you would like to know the history of a famous car maker... 更多
