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 with slighted adjusted opening times of 10am – 4pm.  Please adhere strictly to the government advice and only visit in single households, as an individual, or as two individuals observing social distancing guidelines.
I currently have a special offer flat rate entry fee of £2.50 per person (children free) for the garden.  Alternatively If you wish to visit the garden on a more regular basis I have set up a garden membership which entitles you to unlimited garden visits until the end of April.  Please email if you wish to subscribe and I will be able to give you the current cost for the remaining membership period.


The Manor house is sadly closed again. We hope to be permitted to reopen within the next few weeks but please check here for further updates and telephone or email if you wish to book a provisional appointment for a future date. When we do reopen for house tours we expect our visitor numbers to continue to be restricted with social distancing in place and other precautions such as hand sanitise for use by all visitors.


Keep safe everyone.
