Tulleys Escape Rooms – Nethercott Manor – 9/10
Crawley, West Sussex
The old manor house is entwined with local legend, the living don’t remember the Nethercott’s, the family’s hay day was long ago. Local folk talked, whispers were heard, rumours began, lights were seen within.
The Nethercott’s are long gone but something remains, an essence, a smell, a feeling, it’s in the fabric, in the walls, under the floor boards … it ticks, it creeks … take a trip into the past, uncover the family’s many secrets and glimpse their fleeting souls?
Played – September 2019 and November 2021
Our Host was Tyler in 2019 and Dominic in 2021. Both did a good job of setting the scene, even if Tyler did take a little too much delight in our scares!
You can tell that a lot of effort was put into room decoration and it fitted the theme well. This is certainly an amazing premium experience with plenty to explore!
The puzzles were varied. A nice mix of physical and mental puzzles that played to each of our strengths at some point. As a 5 we split out at some points and worked together at others. There is a lot to do in this room but as it’s now 90 minutes and we had already don’t half of it back when it was a 60 minute room, we all got to see pretty much everything the room has to offer. The work that has gone into it really is incredible.
We failed to get out of this room in 2019, only our second failure to date, mainly because of our reluctance for clues and the sheer amount of things to do in the room! But, as promised, we went back to finish it and I’m so glad we did!
This is not a game for a newbie and should only be attempted by experienced escapers and I would say the more players the better I would recommend 3-6 players for this room.
