Nethercott Manor


Played 29th September 2018


“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?”


Our host Tyler was very warm and welcoming. As this is a slightly spooky game Laura was a little on edge. Our host was very reassuring, he began with the usual health and safety brief and gave us a little hint to light the way before the game began.

Room Set Up

The game starts off in a small room with minimal lighting however this game does open out. There are parts of the game that are smaller than others but with how the game plays this wouldn’t be an issue for larger teams. The rooms set up was amazing, the attention to detail mixed with the sound and lighting effects makes this a really fun immersive game. This room without doubt had the wow factor. This room is certainly big enough for the maximum team size, Tulleys do recommend larger teams to play as the game has lots to do.

Game Play

This game is a non linear game. There is a vast range of puzzles to complete such as observational, mathematical, and skill. There is also a puzzle which incorporates the sense of smell which came as a nice surprise as we have not seen anything like it before, however the downside to this was the smells became over powering and actually hurt our noses, it would have been nice to have coffee beans on hand as a cleanser. There is an abundance of puzzles to complete so would suit lager teams as you would always find something for each member to complete. Locks are a mix of magnetic locks and padlocks.

Our Overall Rating

Puzzles ★★★★

Immersion ★★★★★

Difficulty ★★★★★

Wow Factor ★★★★★

Overall Experience ★★★★☆

This was a very fun spooky game, Tulleys have done an extremely good job at creating this game with all the elements of sound, decoration and lighting effects coming together to submerge you in the theme of the game. Although we didn’t escape this game we weren’t disappointed as the parts of the game we did get to experience we enjoyed. This is a very large game so for the two of us it was a challenge, so we would recommend this game for at least four people or a very experienced three. Divide and conquer would be the best way to tackle this game and only being a two this wasn’t possible especially when Laura refused to move from the floor. At the end of the game our host took us on a tour of the rest of the game and we were amazed by how Tulleys had utilized every inch of space, we would highly recommend this game and we are looking forward to returning to Tulleys next year.
