The Manor

Built in the 1130s The Manor is one of the oldest continuously inhabited houses in Britain and much of the original house remains virtually intact in spite of various changes over nine hundred years.

The upstairs hall is a room full of atmosphere and the echoes of nearly nine centuries of family conversations. It was used during World War II by Lucy Boston to give gramophone record recitals twice a week to the RAF. The 1929 EMG gramophone is still in use in this room.


The Manor Garden is now open to visitors at the usual time of 11am to 5pm. Please adhere strictly to the government advice and observe social distancing guidelines.
There is a special offer flat rate entry fee of £2.50 per person (children free) for the garden up until the end of March 2021, after which it will go back to being £5 per person (children free). Alternatively If you wish to visit the garden on a more regular basis I have set up a garden membership scheme which entitles you to unlimited garden visits until the end of April 2022. Please email if you wish to subscribe


I am now taking bookings for tours of The Manor house which will start on 17 May. Until the rules change numbers will be restricted to six people wearing masks (unless exempt) and keeping to social distancing, with other precautions such as hand sanitiser for use by all visitors.


Keep safe everyone.
