We have been past the entrance many times before but it was never open. Made a special effort this time to be there for opening time 10:30. Glad we did as it was well worth the visit. The staff are very knowledgeable about the Terry family and we learned some interesting facts. The house itself is very well preserved. The gardens are very well maintained and worth a stroll. We were very lucky as the sun was shining. Would like to go back in the summer when the flowers are out.

Found to be very informative about the Terry family House was excellently decorated for Christmas Had a warm feel about it Whilst the gardens were obviously not at their best in November it was sufficiently interesting to make a further visit in the summer Would recommend

What a real gem. Goddards House and Gardens is owned by the National Trust and is the former home of the Terry Family (yes, famous for Chocolate manufacturer including Chocolate Orange). The volunteers were extremely helpful and welcoming from the minute we went through the front door. The rooms were decorated for Christmas all very tasteful and not over the top. A family home with great history and room by room felt warm and cosy and had a story to tell. Simple, beautiful and lovely. We enjoyed lunch in one of the rooms which made it feel so homely - turkey and stuffing sandwiches - delicious. We later enjoyed a stroll around the gardens and will definitely revisit again.

Althought I've visited Goddards on several occasions, this was an opportunity to see the House decorated for Christmas, just as the Terry family would have celebrated. It's a delight to enjoy this Arts and Crafts house, just as if you're a member of the family; so sit on the furniture, play board games, take a glass of sherry !! A special thanks to all the well informed Volunteers, who brought the whole place to life. And don't miss the dining room, we had a superb lunch !!
