Beautifully preserved in a lovely landscape. It’s worth a visit as part of a walk etc. Bradbury Hill is just a short walk (uphill) away.

Well worth the detour to visit this medieval tithe barn to get a better understanding of tithe barns of the period. It is owned by the National Trust. There is no formal access charge but donations towards the cost of its upkeep are welcomed

Lovely old barn, great spot for a picnic on a sunny day. My children love playing in the barn and can entertain themselves for hours.

An amazing structure built in 14th Century. If you appreciate old buildings and construction techniques, then certainly worth a visit. Would be quite an undertaking to build now,never mind 700 years so!

This National Trust Property is simply outstanding. It demonstrates to size and technical complexity that builders could manage around the 13th century. Huge beams and rafters. How they bent them to form such architectural structures is a source of wonderment. They certainly didn't hold them...More

If you're looking for a day out, this is not the place. That being said, if you're in the vicinity or if you have a thing for medieval buildings then this place is definitely worth a visit. Constructed in the 13th century, this tithe barn...More

One of the best medieval tithe bans in the UK. Owned by the National Trust it should be on everyone's "places to visit" list
