Thank you Tripadvisor and all you posters. I do not think we would have found this fascinating group of Alms Houses had it not been for the reviews. Very much the type of attraction that appeals to us and as one poster says, parallel to the larger Snowshill Manor in the UK. On arrival we went for a coffee in... 更多
