I decided to take an old friend out to Wightwick Manor for the day. This is a lovely house, home of the Mander family, who still use it occasionally. It is late 19th century, Arts and Crafts style home filled with beautiful Pre-Rafelite paintings, stunning pottery, furniture and rugs and the most amazing 100 year old William Morris wallpaper.

We came to look around the grounds and did not look inside the manor. The gardens were beautiful and it was lovely looking through them despite the poor weather. The area beyond the mathematical bridge seemed to be in disarray although the rest of the grounds were impeccable.

This place is a total stunner from the first room to the last if you love the arts and crafts movement this surely has to be the ONLY grail of this short lived movement . Every room in this place holds treasure upon treasure , the arts and crafts period never really lasted very long and suddenly became obsolete and... More

Magnificent house with enthusiastic guides who clearly love the place. they are very well informed and eager to advise visitors about the history of the building. Lovely well cared for garden. Coffee shop is small and can be a bit pricey.They need to provide more eats to attract those with a Gluten intolerance problem. The visit overall including parking can... More

Having lived in Wolverhampton all my life it took me to take friends to Wightwick on a visit. Why did I not go before, it's a gem.

The whole ambiance of this attraction is one of a mini Downton Abbey with a modern twist. Its simple clean laid out gardens and house will demand at least 4+ hours.The entrance off the main road is not obvious until you are on it so slow down so as not to miss it. Car parking is adequate but worth driving... More

We visited here and spent a lovely few hours in the gardens, the shop and of course the Manor House. Beautifully kept with fantastic William Morris wall hangings and designs along with many gorgeous paintings. The staff were very obliging, informative and helpful. A great experience.

Wightwick was one of those places we kept saying we must go to. And now, after a shamefully long time, we have been. And now we have, we will keep going! The property itself is stunning inside and out and the guides were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and interesting without being too over-bearing. The gardens were wonderful too - beautifully kept... More
