A small fascinating Manor House that is obviously enjoyed by the resident Stringer family. Only open twice a year for a few days in April/March and again from mid to August end, this is when we visited. The tour is started in the sitting room commencing with a very erudite volunteer villager giving an amusing, informative and comprehensive introduction to all the historical past to present events known, taken comfortably seated. You are then invited to roam freely. We are HHA members so free entry given. A small marked field for free parking with disability parking along drive in front of property. I would advise arriving promptly at the opening time of 2pm as you would not want to miss the intro, although if you did arrive later I’m sure a précis of the initial full oratory would be given. Tea and cake is verbally advertised throughout from beginning to end, this involves someone putting on the kettle on demand as ostensibly you are visiting someone’s home, it is an intimate experience. Pleasant grounds, church, tithe barn in a rural setting. A bit of a gem.

It is great to visit an historic house that is very much lived in with 3 generations of Jenny Stringers family calling it their home . The is much to see including an interesting collection of historic glassware, beautifully set out rooms . At the top of the house there is Jenny's fabric design studio which is worth the visit in its own right . A large listed barn is also available to visit The cakes with the afternoon tea were scrumptious the cost of this all going to charity. A wonderful quiet oasis just off the busy A40 east of Cheltenham.

Having visited Whittington Court 2 1/2 years ago my wife and I decided to visit again on Saturday 14th having rejoined HHA (£80.00....visited 25 properties last year) to which it is free for members.
Having got ourselves lost on our SatNav (our fault incorrect postcode) we arrived at 4.30 and Jenny was at the doorway who made us more than welcome (still time for tea and cake..lovely garlic scone and ginger cake...donate monies to the church fund).
Once again we had an approx 45 mins walking around the house on our own to which we enjoyed.The house is only open on certain days and times so check before arriving.

When searching for places to visit this little gem doesn't come up. We found it through the HHA website. It isn't open very often but I would thoroughly recommend that if you are a fan of the different, to visit. Warmly greeted and talked through the history. Very friendly family who were as interested in you as you were them. Stuffed to the rafters with 'things', not for fans of minimalism or neat freaks! The church next door is worth popping your head into, especially for the brass of a previous lord of the manor and the dress of the time, and the crusader tombs.

Whittington Court is stuffed full of history, estate records,even the story of the origin of the Stars and Stripes!There is history within the Court,there is history next door in the church with its crusader tombs,there is history across the road with the roman villa,there is history under the oaks trees with the remains of the medieval village abandoned during the black death, more roman farms up the road and a roman temple down the road-well worth a visit
