Small property but worth a visit

Mudeford123, Christchurch, United Kingdom
This is only a small National Trust property but well worth the visit. The people running the property were very friendly and informative. It does not take long to look around but everything is well displayed and explained. I also liked seeing the two donkeys out in the paddock. Could easily be visited in conjuction with a visit to Gibside.

Day out

Me and my family visited here because of two reasons, we have never been and wanted to see it and the other because my boyfriend's mam volunteers here and I wanted to see her. It's a lovely little place with lots of history,beautiful views and two donkeys and alpacas. It's worth a visit.

Have been wanting to visit here for a while now and eventually got there today. Free car parking but be aware car park is quite small. The staff were lovely and informed us of the children's activities available for the day. I have to admit my 4 year old was not interested in the history side of the visit but she loved the gardens and play area. There were garden games including large dominoes, frizbees, balls and large jenga for the children to play. There was a den building area and we had a great time in there and she loved watching the busy bees in their hives!!! We took a picnic and there's plenty of different little areas to sit and eat a picnic. You are able to buy drinks and very small selection of scones and cakes.

Delightful and interesting place to visit

This is the former home of Thomas Bewick [who I confess to never having heard of before]. It is a small farmhouse set up on a hill with lovely views and a collection of, mostly tame, wild animals around. The NT guides are at their very best here [that is default setting!] and it was a lovely discovery....
