Situated in Ramsey

The Grove Museum of Victorian Life tells the story of the Gibb family and their Victorian summer retreat, which later became their permanent residence and family home. Beautifully preserved to provide an intriguing insight into life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, a visit to the house, outbuildings and country garden is like stepping back in time.
