Fascinating time capsule showcasing Pre-Raphaelite paintings and Morris/Kempe/De Morgan interiors.

A treasure trove of a house and garden but, sadly, one of the most poorly interpreted National Trust properties I have ever visited. Information about the house itself, it's rich contents and the Manders family is scant: visitors are expected to ask the room guides, pick up the densely written room guides' books, or fight over the few (too brief)...

My daughter and I visited Wightwick Manor last week. When we got there we were told that as it was Tuesday the house was closed for cleaning. That was fine because we only intended to take a walk around the gardens with my four month old grandson. As it was lunchtime we went to visit the cafe. There was limited... More

National Trust used to be a standard lunch stop off for us, now we are beginning to doubt. Food was good here but the service just hopeless. Lunchtime and one person on the till. So 20 minutes to get to the front to place an order then 20 minutes to deliver a bowl of soup. If I hadn't have complained... More

This place should not be missed if you like the arts and Crafts movement and William Morris in particular. Always open and staff always welcoming. Not large grounds but the house is something else. so much better now you do not have to go on a tour but can wander and ask staff the questions you really want answering. Do... More

It is well worth a visit to this historic building. It is really lovely to visit in the summer when the grounds are lovely to explore. The building has so much character and full of history. Highly recommended. Marg T

Visited on a wet day in February. The house was excellent and well worth the visit. The gardens were nice but clearly not the best time of the year. Easy to find using the sat nav post code in the guidebook

Relaxing stroll around grounds or home. Regular visitor and on my doorstep. Additional parking now, which is a definite bonus, though still not enough. Popular place.

If one likes the Pre-Raphaelites, the visit of the house is a must. And the gardens are just wonderful when in full bloom. We keep going there for its peace too.

We had an absolutely splendid visit to Wightwick Manor after New Year to view the ground floor decorations before they were taken down. We had planned to go earlier but due to a puncture arrived to late to get into the house but the staff (volunteers) were brilliant and made sure we knew when they were open and we could... More
