Our visit was on 12th November last year as part of a booked coach party, during the close season for general public visits, and included a very good light lunch. There was plenty going on. When we arrived, a party of junior schoolchildren were visiting and appeared to be wearing Tudor period costumes. They all practised their extravagant bows and... More

This is a great day out. We'd e sure to go more often if there were some kind of family offer for the year to make the most of the gardens and the activities without having to pay full entry every time.

Had the privilege of organising a trip to Sulgrave Manor for a WI group, their annual Christmas outing. Started with a Cooked meal at lunch time, the quality was really very good. Then the group were split into two and had a tour of the house with costumed guides who were excellent. Then finished off with tea and cakes. The... More

Spent 3/4 hours with lots to do with 2 families of 2 kids (5 to 13). Lots to do as the staff had put lots on to entertain the kids. Adults went free but kids were value for money. Cafe catered for lunch fine, food tasty. Would go again.

This is quite a small place but the guides make the most of it. Linda was full of enthusiasm and obviously devotes a lot of time to this attraction. The tour lasted a long time although there were only about 4 rooms but fortunately there was somewhere to sit in most of them. The grounds are well maintained even though... More

Arriving at Sulgrave Manor we found there was a wedding on. Staff were very much caught up in this, and a little distracted in the reception. We were told that entrance is by guided tour only and that the next one would be in an hour's time after the wedding. There's not much to keep you occupied in the meantime,... More

Hi Tom, Firstly my apologies for the delay in responding to your comments, I'm afraid that I've have had some difficulty getting in to our Tripadvisor account. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit to the manor. Most weekends between April and October, when we are open to the public, we have weddings booked and we do our... More

Despite living nearby for years, I had never visited Sulgrave Manor:but today, we drove the 32 miles from our current home and wow - it was really worth it! We started in The Buttery cafe, which serves superb home-made cakes, scones etc After a cup of tea and something to eat, we wandered round the gardens, which are tended entirely... More

This is a small museum but loaded with history as the ancestral home of the family of President Washington. There are good guided tours, a welcomed café and a nice shop. Relaxing place in a lovely setting. Can buy potted herbs ready to plant which come from the well cared for herb garden. Would highly recommend a visit, especially for... More
