The house has 16 sides making it very unusual. It's a National Trust property so if you don't belong to them it's just under £20 for 2 adults. The Parminter cousins built it in this shape to make the most out of natural light. Filled with lots of treasures they collected from around the world. Sadly the shell room at... 更多

There are so many little treasures that the two ladies that built the house collected on their world travels. The lady that conducted our tour was a font of knowledge and answered every question that was asked concerning the house. There are two narrow staircases... 更多

I was told that the NT had decided to charge everyone regardless of whether you visit the... 更多
