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 extended opening times from 10am – 6pm.  Please adhere strictly to the government advice and observe social distancing of at least 2m from those outside your household wherever possible (and 1m plus at all times)


I currently have a special offer flat rate entry fee of £5 per person (children free) for the garden.  Alternatively If you wish to visit the garden on a more regular basis I have set up an garden membership which entitles you to unlimited garden visits for a year for a one off cost of £12.50 per person.  Please email if you wish to subscribe.


The Manor house will reopen to very small groups of visitors from 6 July, with social distancing in place and other precautions such as hand sanitiser for use by all visitors. It is essential to pre-book an appointment if you wish to visit. Please email us for an appointment if you are able to, or telephone in advance if you do not have access to email


Keep safe everyone.
