Attractive house and gardens - not too large or overfacing. A guided tour of the house is included in the ticket price. Well worth doing! If I had gone round the house on my own (only 5-6 rooms open to the public) I would have done it in 10-15 minutes. The tour lasted 1.5 hours and our guide (Thea) was... More

I`ve been there in 2014 May, weather was not the best, but enough good to enjoy the garden of this house, which is great, well maintenanced, beautiful. Interesting history as George Washington`s family stayed there. House is not too huge, however has very old parts,hundreds of years. (there is a wing which is fully restored) A guided tour is available.... More

I visited last week with a school teacher friend visiting from Washington DC. This was my second visit to Sulgrave Manor having previously enjoyed a 4th July celebration here a few years ago. I therefore knew my friend would be impressed by the history and ambiance of the Manor but words can't explain her reaction to this beautiful, interesting home... More

We went here for a wedding. The house looks very pretty from the outside. We didn't get to see the inside. Grounds around the manor are well maintained. Beautiful place for a small wedding.

We took an American friend to this, the home of George Washington's ancestors and she was bowled over. That's the reaction we always get when we take visitors this wonderful place. The conducted tours are good and informative, the displays are excellent and the whole place is run with efficiency. The cafe serves good food and there's a splendid gift... More

We Googled places of interest around the area near where my son lives and Sulgrave Manor popped up! On a rainy, miserable Saturday afternoon there is nowhere better to go. Friendly greeting on arrival, very reasonably priced and interesting history. Our tour guide, Bea, was so knowledgeable and made the tour interesting without too many names, dates etc to remember....

Almost in the middle of nowhere, in quite a small village, there are this well preserved house and gardens telling the history of the Washington family There is a guided tour with a very knowledgeable lady - recommended.

We visited this lovely old manor house with a group, a couple of days ago and were very impressed. As it isn't run by a big organisation I think this was the reason the welcome was so friendly. We had an excellent tour of the grounds and garden, George Washington's ancestors lived here, the house had lots of interesting articles... More
