De aanpak van Tripadvisor met betrekking tot beoordelingen
Voordat Tripadvisor-beoordelingen geplaatst worden, gaan ze door een geautomatiseerd trackingsysteem dat informatie verzamelt en de volgende vragen beantwoordt: hoe, wat, waar en wanneer. Als het systeem iets detecteert dat mogelijk in tegenspraak is met onze communityrichtlijnen, wordt de beoordeling niet gepubliceerd.
Wanneer het systeem een probleem detecteert, wordt een beoordeling mogelijk automatisch afgekeurd, naar de beoordelaar gestuurd voor goedkeuring, of handmatig beoordeeld door ons team van contentspecialisten die 24/7 aan de kwaliteit van de beoordelingen op onze website werken.
Ons team controleert elke beoordeling die op onze website geplaatst wordt en volgens onze bezoekers niet aan onze communityrichtlijnen voldoet.

For anyone who has read the children's books 'The Children of Green Knowe by Lucy Boston this place is a must!
Lucy lived at the Manor, undertook a huge restoration to bring it back to its Norman origins. Designed and planted the most beautiful gardens, wrote the most enchanting children's books which were based on the grounds and the Manor. Also if that wasn't enough she also hand stitched the most amazing patchwork quilts.
So there are various aspects of this visit which will keep all visitors interested is many ways.
I recommend you ring and also arrange a guided house tour which is personally done by Diana Boston, Lucy's daughter in law whose home it is now. Her tour not only gives a history of the house, some details of Lucy and her books and you also get to see the beautiful quilts.
You can just visit the gardens, but I feel you are seriously missing a treat if you don't do the house as well.

A magical house. Brought to life by a charming hostess. Incredible collection of patchwork. Eclectic collection of artifacts. Lovely to see how the house formed the backdrop to a series of childrens' books.

Somewhere I wanted to visit for a very long time, The Children of Green Knowe is my favourite book and I love all of the Green Knowe Chronicles.
We had a marvellous time exploring the house and listening to Diana Boston as she told us all about The Manor’s ancient history and Lucy M. Boston’s life all her magnificent patchworks and stories.
Stepping into the house felt like you stepping into the books, It was truly memorable seeing objects that I have loved in the books for decades and to be in Tolly’s bedroom and for it to be so perfectly ‘real’ was something I will treasure forever. It was a real joy to visit this wonderful place.

The house has been lived in since the 1100s and the present owner showed us round. She also showed us some of the hand made patchwork quilts made by her late mother-in-law and played the ancient gramophone which used to entertain airmen during the war. A wonderful glimpse into history and lovely gardens too. Worth a visit.

Once again Green Knowe doesn't fail to charm! I visited this house over 20 years ago and it remains gloriously unchanged. Diana's stories are brilliant and she shares an enormous amount of history about the house. It's a must see if you ever read the Green Knowe books but also to visit the glorious garden created by Lucy Boston and view her incredible patchworks. Please do book a visit and meet Diana! Read the books first (but buy them direct from Diana to support the upkeep of the house!)

This was my first visit to this beautiful place. Having been a fan of the Children of Green Knowe series as a child, I re-read all 6 before our visit, it was magical to be able to walk through your childhood memories and find Tolly's Mouse or Susan's doll!! The house is beautiful and very much still a home and if you are lucky enough to be taken around by Diana Boston, the magic really comes alive. Her powers of story telling are wonderful and to sit and listen to her speaking about her family, the history of this glorious house and the characters in the books is really amazing. We even had chance to experience our own Gramophone concert and listening to "Abide with me" in the silent and ancient "Knights' Hall", as so many young airmen did during the war was very moving indeed.
There are lots of fascinating curios around the house as well as many of the original book illustrations created by Peter Boston, including all the original book cover designs but another highlight is listening to Diana telling the story of Lucy's incredible quilts as she displays them, one by one, on a bed- just where they should be seen.
Finally, the gardens themselves are beautiful. We were too late for the irises but the roses and the flower borders are lovely to explore and wander through and who knows, there might still be a gorilla hiding in the bamboo- but don't dare tell anyone!!

Rocked up here just expecting to wander around an interesting historic house and garden, but it was so much more! It was Diana's stories and her obvious passion and reverence for the house and its history that made the experience really magical. I had never heard of Lucy Boston, the Green Knowe stories, or her quilting virtuosity and I was swept away. A visit very much more than the sum of its parts. Highly recommended.

What a special place - and how magical to be shown around by the current owner, whose knowledge of the history of the house is fabulous, and shared with great humour. The garden is glorious - I'm going to have to return in every season to see the changes.

My favorite thing was touring the house and seeing all the rooms and objects that I had read about. This site will be interesting to anyone who has read the Lucy Boston books set at "Green Knowe", anyone interested in quilting, and anyone interested in history, old houses, and gardening. If you want to tour the house, arrange it in advance. The owner gives a great tour with wonderful stories about the home.

Very interesting tour, especially if you into crocheting and the books by the author.

We came because we wanted a tour of the 900 year old house. The tour is given by the owner occupier and it’s very well delivered.

There is alot of history in the house and it was nice to see the house and gardens.
