Testimonial

Brigitte is an inspirational hostess, whose passion for all things Tudor and 17th century allows visitors to enjoy the most rewarding glimpse into another era. Parsonage Farm is a 'must visit' experience ... Our hosts could not have been more welcoming, entertaining and knowledgeable. There were Tudor treats to enjoy with your Tudor beverages if you fancied something different to tea or coffee, all homemade! The history of the pieces in the beautiful home were exquisite.
