This is a lovely building designed by Sir Edward Lutyens, which stands in gardens influenced by Gertrude Jekyll. There's a super tea room and regular exhibitions of, William Morris designs and other Arts and Crafts influences. The building was commissioned by the wealthy Mander family of Wolverhampton in the late 19th Century. It is a wonderful example of the Arts... More

We were very pleased to find an NT property open in early January to meet family members we had missed at Christmas. We shared a visit to this fascinating Manor House which was made all the more interesting by the volunteer room guides. Manders family history and a great collection of William Morris materials were key features. It was a... More

Just off a main road, easily accessible even by public transport. It tells you so much about local history. The house - much bigger inside than I had expected - is situated in beautiful gardens. Well worth the effort, especially when the weather is kind.

The house and gardens are gorgeous- there's a lot to see and do. The house itself is a great example of the arts and craft movement and is a showcase of William Morris prints! It's jam packed and you could spend a long time looking round. The room stewards are very friendly and helpful. There's also a lovely tearooms there.

Tucked away but a worthy find! What an amazing house with limitless sums spent on it by the original owners, the Manders family. We all really enjoyed it.

In January only the ground floor rooms are open to the public so we hope to go back sometime to see the rest of the house and the gardens, which we think will probably be lovely in the summer (sadly it was raining for our visit). Although the NT took this over in the 1930s it still feels very much... More

We visited Wightwick Manor on a very cold January day as another place ticked off from our national trust book. Set just outside Compton, Wightwick Manor is easy to get to from Wolverhampton. The gardens are lovely even with no flowers in bloom and the house is incredible for none NT members it is £10.30 for adults which is pretty... More
