We really enjoyed our visit here today. Despite turning up half an hour early - and my husband forgetting to bring a facemask with him - we were made very... read more welcome on arrival. The staff could not have been more knowledgeable about the history of the house and the Gaskell family, their passion and enthusiasm really brings the house to life. Elizabeth Gaskell's bedroom was restored over lockdown and is now open to the public. The exhibition on Cranford is also really interesting. Heartily recommended!
Went with my daughter on a very wet and windy day, so unusually quiet. The house is beautiful and being sensitively restored.

We, especially my daughter, enjoyed the book sale and our only regret was not having some of the lovely homemade cake!
I would love to go back, especially to some of the very interesting workshops and events. And we are inspired to extend our reading of Mrs Gaskell! Highly recommended.
(If you like Korean food, pop round the corner to Seoul Kimchi, great food and value)
