One of the most romantic small manor houses in the West of England. The Tudor manor is the lived-in medieval manor house of the de Olepennes, dating from 1450 to 1616, with minor early 18th century improvements. There is a magnificent Tudor Great Hall, a Jacobean wing with Solar and an elegant early Georgian Little Parlour and doorcase of 1719. There was some Arts & Crafts restoration in 1926 by Norman Jewson after the manor house had been uninhabited for 100 years. The Great Chamber contains unique painted cloth and wall-hangings. Exhibits also include:
  • Mander family collections
  • Panelling
  • Tudor wall-paintings
  • Furniture
  • Textiles
  • Beadwork
  • Pictures
  • Cotswold Arts & Crafts furnishings & PlasterworkThe formal gardens include seven hanging terraces of the 16th/17th centuries, with topiary yews, box parterres, old roses and mill pond. On the estate there are lovely walks and fine manorial outbuildings, including a Grist Mill (1728) with cupola, a Court House (1620's) and an elaborate Victorian Church.
