A wet and miserable Bank Holiday Sunday was brightened on my visit to Selly Manor. Our small group felt special with the very warm welcome and additional information provided by the receptionists. Although no where near as big as Aston Hall, Selly Manor provided the opportunity for members of our group to walk around at our leisure. This provided ample... More

Better than many a NT property....self supporting. This was an absolute joy to spend time in. We spent some time in the 'hall' playing games of yesteryear....marbles, skittles,hoopla etc..This place ouzes history and provides visitors with well presented information sheets that you actually want to read. The main building is full of artifacts, many of which you can touch...nice change.... More

A small well kept Tudor house full of interesting artefacts. The best way to teach kids history by stepping back in time. You can wander around on ur own St your leisure and its situated in the beautiful village of Bournville. Surrounded by great architecture .... Pleasant afternoon visit for all. In the school holidays they usually have arts and... More

We called in after visiting Cadbury World to look at this fascinating historical building, taking advantage of the discount available to Cadbury ticket holders. This is a little gem which is worth looking at, with beautifully planted gardens, plenty of historical artefacts indoors and an opportunity to try on some replica period costumes. Make sure you pop in while you're... More

A fascinating building with true historical roots, set in a great environment, well worth a visit. The rooms have artefacts which show how life was lived by the owners including a farm garden. there are period costumes for your kids to try on and very welcoming staff. Its only small, but great.

We were in Bournville wandering around and I overheard a tour guide from Cadbury World telling a group about this house. After hearing that the buildings date as far back as the 1500s and have been moved from other locations I had to go have a look. There's a very small fee to get in but it's well worth it.... More

The museum is small but gives a real flavour of life 400 years, and now with amazing costumes for both adults and children to try on. Garden is looking fantastic too.

Small but homely, got little booklets in every room, which makes it extremely informative, but will be better if there are, or is at least one house guide explaining things.

Small but packed full of interesting things. We also did the Bournville Village trail - not long but packed full with interesting buildings.

My friend and I loved this charming house, it was so interesting, there are booklets containing the origins of so many sayings, fascinating. The gardens are lovely. It was a shame that there was no gardener available as I asked how there were so many flower heads on the Angelica plant as it was quite small. The Cadbury village is... More
