Very well done. The BBC five years ago did a good job of re-creating seven rooms in different historical time zones. Well done, with a Christmas twist and most knowledgeable guides who brought the house to life. Yes, nice to get out of the cold.

Visiting with our 12 year old girls - it was great to be able to touch the exhibits freely. Helped to imagine what it would have been like

Although we were just two adults on our own we ere delighted to see children exploring, trying and enjoying the Manor. As it was half term there were plenty of them. The NT guide in the bedroom was especially good with children encouraging them to get up on the bed, after taking their shoes off of course, giving them information... More

Great location -you are positively encouraged to touch, sit on, play with the hoard of furniture, ornaments and knickknacks. The room guides are brimming with information and the gardens are beautiful. The museums and the stones are nearby so there is no shortage of things to do. The tea room is the best ever!

This is a very friendly NT house: you can imagine living here. Various rooms have been decorated in different styles to imagine what it might have been like to live here in different centuries. The gardens are wonderful: very picturesque.

Really enjoyed our visit to Avebury Manor which houses an excellent exhibition of how the house would have looked in the 1930s even including dirty plates in the kitchen as if someone had just left. It is possible to touch and sit on the exhibits as the interior has been recreated as a result of a joint BBC/National Trust venture.

The BBC spent a lot of money doing the manor up for a series called the Manor Reborn. I did not actually see that but the advantage is you can sit on all the reproduction furniture and really interact with the building. It was a great visit and the gardens are also brilliant. The NT volunteers where cheerful and full... More

We had come to Avebury to see the standing stones and had not intended to stay long. When we were offered tickets to the house we weren't even sure we would go. I am so glad we did. The manor is enchanting. It was hardly mentioned in the National Trust book and so we did not expect much. The manor... More
