Although living only a relatively short distance away, this was the first time my wife and i had visited Wightwick and we were not disappointed.Charming house with very informative guides available when required. Child friendly with a variety of activity days from time to time. A lovely idea was that you could sit on any of the furniture if "it... More

Gem of a house with lots of history. Mander family story is fascinating as is how difficult it was to gift house to nation. The tour of the outside of the house is worth taking if available.

What a wonderful place to visit. Being able to roam freely around the house at leisure and with knowledgeable people to give information in each room was a real treat.

Overpriced really not very informed staff rather offhand really. Gardens seemed rather untidy and the manor was a little disappointing café staff obviously volunteers but not reflected in prices. Perhaps just picked a bad day.

This is a beautiful family home and gardens tucked away on the outskirts of Wolverhampton, we've been a few times now and there is always something new to learn about the house. The gardens are stunning in the spring, the house is a treat and it's easy to imagine the life led by the family. A lady was playing the... More

We visited Wightwick with my partner, sister, father and 4 month old daughter. The staff of the house were very helpful firstly in storing her pram, and secondly as they were happy to explain any detail in the highly decorated and artistic house. There are William Morris wall papers, exquisite ceramics, pre raphelite paintings and tapestries. The windows have salvaged... More

The family abode of the Mander family given to National Trust less tha fifty years after construction completed. The house is crammed with memorabilia from An era gone, high quality furniture, myriad fully furnished rooms, kitchens and some superb paintings. The gardens are well laid out and a huge variety of plants and trees.

What a beautiful home and I call it a home because this is how I saw it. An insight into the lifestyle of the mander family and how well they looked after their staff. It's awash with William Morris fabrics and wallpapers, not to mention pre-raphaelite art work, I felt like a child in a sweet shop not sure which... More
