Built around 1618, this was the last conventional Jacobean house erected in England, which today features fine 17th-century architectural detail including plasterwork, woodwork and chimneypieces.

We visited last Sunday. We had a lovely visit. The volunteer staff in the house were very helpful and knowledgeable. We did think that £8.00 was a bit expensive for an adult entry, especially as the leaflet guide is not included in the ticket price....More

A jewel in Birmingham's crown. Wonderful building brought to life by an extremely knowledgeable guide. Gardens and teashop to finish off the visit. If you like history you will love it!

This is a great house to look around, full of interesting things to look at. To see where a cannonball came through a big wooden staircase in the 1600s is quite a sight, and I always like to see where the servants lived...you can go...More

As photos. Jacobean lovelieness. Keep looking up if you love Jacobean ceilings. Wood flooring and panelling were great. Go up to the attic, and don't miss the kitchen and garden.
