Visited with no real idea of what to expect, but found this to be a real gem of a place. The enthusiasm of the National Trust volunteers brought the house, and the life of William Morris, to life in a fascinating way. Would definitely recommend.

We are members of the National Trust & look to justify the membership fee by visiting NT locations whenever we are in the area. This was one of the smaller properties we have visited, but was nevertheless very interesting, due to the previous residents background & important contribution to the country. Only a short visit but worthwhile.

Although this is a relatively small National Trust property it is well worth visiting to discover more about William Morris & his life. The staff were helpful & enthusiastic & I enjoyed finding out more about the Nuffield Foundation. The cafe is too small & cramped which is a shame.

A superbly homely National Trust property. Don't miss the introductory talk - it puts it all into context. So much we didn't know about Lord Nuffield - what a great philanthropist, he certainly did great deeds with his money, just like Bill Gates (Just wish more of the wealthy in the world had their attitude) Highly recommended

We visited on the last day of the season and the house was still quite busy, we found the introductory talk on the lawn fascinating, I never knew that iron lungs had been made in the Morris Car Garage. The house itself felt a lot more homely than most National Trust properties and you really got a sense of the... More

By NT standards Nuffield Place is a small property, but well worth a visit to understand the person behind the Nuffield Foundation and various beneficiaries. A highlight for car buffs is the 1930's Wolseley kept in the garage, but not far behind is the tool cupboard, housed in the bedroom wardrobe1 The small café is rather cramped and the service...

An interesting house and grounds with many interesting objects and memories within the house. The Iron lung behind the garage is worth a look.

This may be a smaller national trust property but it is just as interesting as many larger houses. There is do much content left behind by the owners that you feel they have only just stepped out of the property. Well kept gardens and lovely tea room and gift shop. Very pleasant and helpful volunteers on hand to answer any... More
