An excellent place to visit with plenty of detail about the previous owners including the ancestors of George Washington. It's a good size and can be visited in 2-3 hours or less if your pressed for time. There are interesting gardens with plants from the New World which the Pilgrim Fathers would have had to rely on

Dear Colin, Thankyou for your kind words. Our Garden Team have been working hard over the winter maintaining the garden, including the small selection of American herbs. It would be fantastic to see you returning in 2020 as there have also been some changes in the Manor and we would be greatful for your feedback. All the Best

Sulgrave Manor is pretty compact which might disappoint some, but for me that was much of its appeal. I find many grand stately piles with endless rooms to be much of a muchness. Sulgrave is modest in both size & decor. Very real, very manageable, authentically laid out. The guides were easy going & chatty. Small but pleasant gardens. It is the ancestral home of George Washington so there is some history on his forebears but in general it’s just a nice example of a house of the period. There is a tea & cake ‘area’ but not what you could call a tea room. Check opening hours - very limited trading times.

Dear mrstraveller1, Thank you for your kind words. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. We call our tea area the Brewhouse, as you are quite right, we do not call it a tea room for that reason. We hope you join us again next season to see some changes. All the Best

Nice staff, interesting history, small gardens, clean facilities but...the website promised..'Brewhouse Tearoom with scrumptious cakes, qaulity coffee and a selection of teas' very misleading.. there is no tearoom, it is a coffee machine served with paper cups with tables to sit at. Not good at all. Saw the house, walked round the garden and spent less than an hour here.

Dear Bevvym2015, We are pleased you found the history of Sulgrave Manor interesting and our staff were friendly and approachable. We are so sorry to hear that your visit with us was disappointing. After reading your review, we looked at the website as this had not been bought to our attention as misleading previously, you will be pleased to know the phasing of this statement has been rectified. If you could contact us, on the email address below with the date and time you were served with a paper cup as we will look into this further. Although our hot drinks are on a self-serve basis, you should have been offered a ceramic cup to enjoy our quality coffee beans. enquiries@sulgravemanor.org.uk Kind regards

This is an amazing place.We expected to have a quick visit as it is a small place but we ended up spending over 2 hours here.We were met at reception by a very nice young lady who was extremely helpful.We had a lovely walk around the grounds and chatted to a lovely lady about the fruit and herbs in the garden.Next was a tour round the manor itself and we enjoyed talking to the guides about the interesting items including a wonderfully embroidered bed curtain.We were treated to a “pop-up” talk on tea by Thea who made it interesting and enjoyable and not too long.We can thoroughly recommend this place to anyone,small but well worth a visit.The George Washington display was interesting but will be better when more items arrive.

Dear Mike S, Thank you for review, it was lovely to read that our staff were friendly and informative. I have passed your kind words on, especially to Thea for the pop up talk and Aliza the lovely lady who greeted you at the welcome desk. Please do recommend us to friends and family, we do feel we are a hidden gem. We are closed for the season 29th September 2019, and we will be using this time to develop our George Washington Exhibition. We hope to see you in 2020! All the best
