“a little hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Old soar manor, is very much off the beaten track and even the sat nav struggled to find it. It is well worth a visit if you have the odd half hour or so to spare.It is unmanned and you wonder around at your leisure, I could just imagine how it used to be. I think England has lots of little hidden gems.

“Really enjoyed it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

This was a manor home built in the 12th century and was habited until the 17th century. Interesting to see how the knights would have lived versus the lords of the day at Bodiam Castle or Leeds Castle. It is pretty much ruins that are left, but does have a hammer beam ceiling and a chapel remaining. Owned by the National Trust, it is free to go in.
