This was such an unexpected pleasure. Very deceptive from the outside, though very striking to look at. The introductory talk gave a bit of an insight into the history then you were free to wander at leisure. It seemed to be a bit like the TARDIS, much bigger inside than expected and around every corner was another room or one... More

This was an interesting manor to look around with informative guides in many of the rooms. The gardens are extremely pretty as well, and we were able to picnic in them.

Wightwick Manor is a real hidden gem, it's an amazing property. The house is very impressive and stuffed full of things to delight the eye. Every room has something of interest, from the beautiful William Morris wall coverings and textiles to the Pre-Raphaelite art. Despite having such a wealth of treasures it still has very much a family feel to... More

Visited for first time today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful house and impressive grounds but the staff were outstanding. Other National Trust properties should take note. They were all so enthusiastic, informative and engaging - can't praise them highly enough. Will definitely visit again.

Wightwick Manor is such a jewel of a property and it's is always a joy to visit. The staff are amazing and so informative about the art work and the decoration I always learn something new on each visit. The grounds are beautiful and a pleasure to walk around and the tea rooms are a must for a visit to... More

Visiting the area from Devon we decided to find time to visit Wightwick Manor and were glad we did. It is an absolutely beautiful house, with such a wealth of detail and interest. We wished we lived nearer so we could visit again and again. I am a big fan of William Morris designs and I wasn't disappointed - there... More

We hadn't heard of this place before our visit. Loved it straightaway. One of the best houses I have ever visited.

Our fourth visit reinforced why we return. This is a beautiful and welcoming Arts and Crafts building designed by the architect Edward Ould – helped in no small way by the excellent volunteers who run the house and explain anything that needs clarification. The quality of architecture, furnishings and artwork in this house is remarkable and there is far too... More

I wasn't sure what to expect of this National Trust property and I certainly wasn't disappointed. The car park is a short distance from the house, but it was a nice day to walk. The gardens were kept nicely, the tea rooms were as always very good. You aren't able to take photos inside the property, the guides were very... More
