We stayed in the Manor for 4 nights at the end of August 2018. For a family of history buffs and one archaeologist, staying in such a fine example of medieval architecture was an absolute dream. Jane, the owner, was incredibly kind to give us...More

For a small building, this place reeks with history. the guided tour is informative, and there is plenty to see and learn. The garden needs work but they are aware and doesn't distract from the overall visit.More

Absolute rubbish. Not worth the £7.50 each admission. The gardens had no flowers or herbs it looked like it had been abandoned. The house was so small it only took 10 mins to get round and the WW1 exhibit was very poor.More

The manor house is most interesting as it embodies medieaval features along with Georgian additions. The way the height of the medieval great hall has been exposed without compromising the later alterations. Most stimulating to the imagination are the "scars" on the outside of the...More
