The boat trip and cream tea

The whole fantastic experience. It's a hidden gem of a house and is still a family home with lots of interesting history relating to the civil war, roman catholic persecution etc. The boat ride was incredibly relaxing and a wonderful experience with an interesting commentary. The cream tea was a lovely way of rounding off the whole day.

Many years ago when i was at school in Reading I wrote an essay about Tudor England and based it on Mapledurham house so it was wonderful to actually see inside the house I had previously had to imagine.

Variety of things to do and see, eg boat ride, mill, house and gardens.

Real treasure of a find location wise. So so friendly an welcoming, even spoke to the boss man himself, such happy lovely people. Took my mum she loved it, better than a perfect pompos national trust place.

The delicious cream tea and the boat trip. We were impressed with the organisation and the fact that our tickets were named and ready to collect at the kiosk.

We enjoyed looking around the water mill but felt the processes could be explained in a simpler format.
