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....

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

We visited with our teenage daughter and 10 year old daughter, and they loved it. Our guide showed us round the whole house and we were not rushed at all, we had loads of questions and found her to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We were the only ones in our group, I don't know if this is normal but... More

My sister and I visited the manor at the end of a 10mile hike. Whilst waiting for the tour to start, we had a wonderful lunch - home made soup, sandwiches and lovely Easter biscuits made to an old traditional recipe. The tour was very interesting and it was wonderful to see the different rooms in the manor. There was... More

We visited on a Sulgrave manor recently and were really impressed. It's not a particularly large house compared with some heritage properties, but it is no less a visit for that. The Manor is nestled in the beautiful village of Sulgrave, right in the heart of the English shires, with an interesting garden and a very knowledgeable and friendly head... More
