“Amazing National Trust site. The mosaics of the huge roman villa found on the site are well worth a visit. Take the guided tour with one of the volunteers to learn more about how the Romans lived. The baths are particularly impressive. Lovely spot for a picnic or a bite to eat at the cafe. Also a great 1 hour walk through the woods and fields from the NT shop - just ask them for a map.”
