I really enjoyed visiting her. It is a very big national trust house, lots to look at. I would even like to visit agin so that I could have a better look as with having the children around we couldn't look at as much as we would have liked. Great for William Morris enthusiasts. Some lovely looking tea rooms and... More

Very friendly and helpful welcome by staff at reception. They made a genuine effort to engage the children in the activities on offer. The house tour was excellent and as with other NT properties there is always something unique. The gardens were small but pleasant and the kitchen garden was lovely (some interesting plants). The cafe was full and I... More

In 1937 Geoffrey Mander MP did something remarkable - he persuaded the National Trust to accept a house that was just 50 years old.This house of the Aesthetic Movement was, by 1937, a relic of an out of fashion era. Yet, so complete was the design that it was worthy of preservation. Having given the house to the Trust, Geoffrey... More

I've been driving past Wightwick Manor on the way to work for over thirty years, but today I stopped to visit it with my husband and a friend. What a wonderful place. The only problem (ours, not the house) was that we didn't really allow enough time to savour everything. The gardens were beautiful and the interior was amazing. Although... More

Pouring with rain, thank goodness for the NT. What a lovely house, a real family home. The staff were knowledgeable, but what really impressed us were the very young volunteers who knew their house history. Lovely gardens with a nice picnic area in an orchard, weather permitting!

We loved it all. The house was picturesque as we approached it and the grounds looked well kept. It was a hot day and went for a drink before going into the house and we sat outside in the sunshine in a courtyard that was a sun trap. The house itself was homely and not stuffy like some of them... More

Spent an afternoon at this wonderful place and wished I had made time to visit it before because it had me enthralled. I hadn't appreciated how spectacular this Victorian house is and the sight of it from the outside is awesome. Our visit started with lunch in the tea room. There was a choice of 3 hot meals and we...

Wonderful use of wood and William Morris wallpaper. Mr Manders, was a very clever man in manipulating the NT to take on his property and allow him to continue living there, the first to achieve this. He even convinced them to buy art for the place! Great guides with a wonderful knowledge of the house, family and furnishings. Talk to... More

We visited here when we discovered that nearby Mosley old hall was closed. As we did wish not to have a wasted journey we decided to visit here instead. What a fantastic decision, beautiful house, knowledgeable and friendly staff and a great Victoria sandwich. What more could you want? The only negative was the number of wasps outside the tea...
