  • Wonderful home, grounds, and overall tour! I read the Green Knowe books as a child, and was filled with eager anticipation of seeing this home; I was not disappointed one iota. My husband and friend c...  more »
  • Beautiful garden and so many varieties and some rare. House tours are available too, quite a bit of local and very old history right on the Ouse.  more »
  • This is described as the oldest inhabited house in England. If you visit the gardens in summer you are in for a treat; the Manor garden fronts onto the river, and is filled with cottage garden plants,...  more »

  • Built in the 1130s, the Manor is one of the oldest continuously inhabited houses in Britain (if not the oldest; disputed). Also the prior residence of Author Lucy M. Boston upon which she based the setting for the 'Green Knowe' book series. The garden topiary is iconic and you can view the Manor throughout the summer months (fee/donation may apply).
  • Nine hundred years of history can be found in what might be the longest continuously occupied house in the country. There is a warm welcome from the owner, daughter in law of Lucy Boston, who guides small groups through half a dozen rooms explaining the social and architectural history in an informative and engaging manner. A selection of Lucy's patchwork quilts are on display, each shown by the owner to help the visitor appreciate the work involved and story behind them. Outside, one can wander the large, but not extensive, grounds and gardens and stroll the riverside walk. Good food is available a few minutes walk away at The Cock.
  • People on the tour found it amazing.
  • A beautiful garden to sit and enjoy the peace and tranquility in and a stunning house full of history and atmosphere. An experience not to be missed. Such an interesting guide who,is also the owner, told us such a lot of the history of the house and grounds. A wonderful day out in a beautiful village and thoroughly recommend a visit. SandiAl.
