Spent around 3 and a half hours here on Saturday with local friends. Fascinating higgeldy house with lots to see ... Arts and Crafts objects and full of William Morris. Knowledgeable guide gave us a resume before we wandered off on our own. Some if the other guides appeared a little stuffy but on the whole a very enjoyable visit... More

We live near and love to pop to visit Wightwick Manor. The house is beautiful and set in lovely gardens which we like to stroll around. A bit of bliss on the outskirts of Wolverhampton. If you like pre Raphaelite art,you will enjoy a visit here. Love the Burne Jones. We like to visit the cafe it has a lovely... More

We visited this house on a lovely sunny day & enjoyed the gardens with their colourful display of tulips. The house was full of fascinating items with lots of William Morris furnishings & wallpapers, De Morgan vases & lovely tiles. Also several pre-Raphaelite paintings. The room stewards were very friendly and helpful & certainly added to the enjoyment of our... More

We visited this house and grounds in early April, so the grounds were not at their best, with some areas cordoned off and grass seeded. The house was interesting to walk round with many interesting facets. Although we did find it rather dark I was not able to get any really nice pictures because as with all other NT properties...

What a really lovely house, beautiful architecture, interiors and art work. Very well presented and the guides were very keen to help, inform if needed and very engaging. We were lucky in that the day we visited that the weather was very good so we were able to take our time in the garden and take some photo's of the... More

If you like the Arts & Crafts movement, then you will LOVE this place, as it was a centre of it because the owners collected A&C pictures, sculptures etc. Designs by William Morris, especially the wallpaper are all through the house, and paintings of the A&C muse Lizzie Siddall are everywhere. Being used throughout, the wallpaper got to be a... More

Early season at present so gardens are still being tidied after winter. The house opens at 12.00 pm and arrived in time to hear the presentation prior to the house tour. The Mander family history is interesting as I can remember the paints when I was younger. The pre Raphaelite link was also fascinating with many Rosetti paintings. Impressed with... More

Absolute rip off I'm afraid. £5.50 per adult just to walk around the grounds (it's £11 per person to visit the house as well) you'd have just as nice a walk at Bantock park or Baggeridge/Himley if not better. Won't be visiting again.

Much has been said about the house so I would like to add my pennyworth regarding the gardens. There is just a bit more too them than meets the eye, I don't want to do any plot spoilers but even a humble apple tree might not be what it seems. The NT gardening staff there really are at the top... More

Beautiful building but it felt as if we were walking around a stuffy museum. The designs by William Morris were spectacular but the whole place lacked atmosphere and uninviting
