A perfect example of a beautiful, grandiose Victorian manor house, with interiors displaying William Morris highlights, influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement. Splendid, well maintained grounds and outbuildings.

This is the 2nd time we have visited this place, its beautiful and very interesting. Learning all about the 'Mander' family is fascinating. The coffee shop is lovely and reasonably priced. The only reason I didnt give this place 5* is because my son fell over and got covered in dog mess that some ignorant person didnt clean up. (I... More

It has limited access for those with mobility problems and it is recommended you book you guided visit as you may have to wait if you arrive on spec, although the walk around the... More

Wightwick Manor is a time capsule treasure of the Arts and Crafts movement, having been owned by an influential local family it's filled with personal mementoes, the children's nursery is a delight. The house is small enough to be intimate and accessible, though staircases make it a problem if you have mobility issues. The gardens are delightful, but again as... More

A really excellent place to visit although with the weather it probably is only a half day experience. I'll be going back to view the gardens when it gets a bit warmer. The house is wonderful and the volunteers certainly know a lot about it. The cafe is pretty good and has some tasty vegetarian food available.

Christmas trees everywhere and the decoration of this house was really lovely - well done as you made this such a treat before Christmas. The coffee... More

We visited here with our 2 young children (6 years & 22 months) and were made to feel most unwelcome. On arrival in the house we were told "you will be careful won't you" in the first room. It felt as if there was a presumption that my children were going to rampage through the house. My younger son was... More
