We booked in a small group to see the Spectacular home brought to life by a group of friendly and knowledgable volunteers. The glass collection and film set info made it for us. Just an hour is all you need, the cafe is closed so do make the effort if you are a NT member in the area.

Pre-booked guided tour – first of the day on a Sunday – all gathered together ahead of time
Tour started outside the front of the building with a guide providing a brief history of the house and its exterior design and location close to the cathedral….

Inside a further description of the occupants of the House until its handover to the National Trust in 1975 – the final occupant was Denis Martineau who left the house to the Trust unfurnished….
The Trust’s work has been to re-create the interior of the House back to when Charles Longueville – brother in law of Charles Mompresson – made significant changes to the house in the 1740’s – the most significant of which was to raise the ceiling of the main reception room – leading to some interesting levels upstairs!

Once the introductions were concluded we were free to explore the house which even today with its well-proportioned rooms and location is very desirable with a very attractive garden which includes part of the wall that once surrounded Cathedral Close

As ever one can only admire the restoration work of the Trust and to thank the very engaging and informative guides that made the visit so interesting – thank you

Pre-booked a tour. Volunteer guides were exceptional; friendly, engaging and highly informative. House was impressive and well laid out. More of the house is now open including upstairs rooms though some furniture is still fully on display in order to create more space. After an introduction talk we were able to move freely around the house and engage with the volunteers in the rooms.

One of the downsides was that the house has been in the hands of several different owners so the NT has opted to display it in a certain period but not necessarily as any of the owners would have furnished it. This doesn't detract from the rooms, decor or the furniture and displays of glass and porcelin.

Well worth a visit.

I concentrate on the staff most of whom are unpaid helpers. Their knowledge was exceeded only by there helpfulness. A treasure.
Thank you for your help and knowledge

Note that you can only visit by pre-arranged and booked guided tour with limited numbers per group.
It's difficult to decide on the highlight, the building g or the garden are equally stunning. The ornate plasterwork was the highlight for me. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Whilst I was greeted by a very stern lady who did not want to see my ticket the two other guides were most gracious and courteous.
Whilst the interior (only allowed to see the ground floor rooms) was typical for the period containing, traditional paintings and furniture for me the garden was the high spot. Spot the privy at the end of the garden!

The location of this NT property is to die for, situated as it is in the Salisbury Cathedral Close. You can see why all its former owners were so keen to show off their home. Unfortunately, on the occasion we visited, it was not possible to go upstairs and see the view of the Cathedral from what, we were told, was an impressive drawing room. Instead, all we were able to see were some fairly sparsely furnished downstairs rooms (and even that furniture, we were told, was not the original as that had been kept by the family). The garden too, was something of a disappointment perhaps because the intense heat of the late July heatwave had done the damage. So, despite the presence of some enthusiastic NT volunteers to show us round we came away underwhelmed.

Only downstairs open and no tea shop in garden. Guides are lovely but I have to say it wasn't the best NT property we have visited. Someone wanted to join the NT and were told it wasn't possible. We felt that was a lost opportunity.

Currently limited by Covid restrictions to small pre booked organised tour groups this modest sized house is well worth a visit. Although at present upstairs is off limits.

The guides were superb, despite the limitations imposed by face masks, with clear explanations and a willingness to answer questions. The house has some strong architectural history, displays some interesting (if not to my taste) porcelain and glass and, some nice furniture.
