  • 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.
