  • Runnymede is run by a lovely group of volunteers. An historic house with charm, original furnishings and plenty of history to learn about not only the time period the house was built and used, but the families living there. Interesting information on the whaling industry too. I loved the original wall paper and my favourite part was the children's height measurements marked in a cupboard, from the late 19th century. Never painted over! I was welcomed in by a bright smile and offered tea at the end. My only regret is that I didn't get to see the garden in full bloom, it looks as though it would be spectacular. I will be visiting again.
  • Historical property, great gardens for holding, as we did a wedding ceremony.
