A lovely piece about the Breach House from the Nottingham Evening Post, June 1985. Look at the picture of the front room - how little has changed!

After some busy summer open days, the Breach House is now closed for the winter. If you would like a private tour of the house, please get in touch. Otherwise we look forward to welcoming visitors again in the Spring.

For the attention of Ruth, one of the two knowledgeable guides that I spoke to today whilst visiting Breach House, 9th. September 2023, and I mentioned the birds eye view that I had taken of the house. Sorry Ruth I tried adding a photo but got the message, 'Upload Failed, Server Rejected' even though the file size was under 500kb

I visited with my partner and was greeted by two lovely ladies. Carol guided us around the house and her knowledge was incredible. She knew so much and delivered the information in an interesting way. The house felt very old and still inkeeping with Lawrence times. The lady gardening too very devoted and their care and attention shows. Absolutely recommend a visit. Such a gem in Eastwood.

Took my mum for a visit on June 6th for her birthday as she loves looking at houses like this as reminds her of her childhood. Lovely place to visit the tour guide was very lovely and informative. The gardens are kept immaculate by a lady gardener who we also met that day. Well done ladies keep up the good work you do.
