History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Jacobean staircase
The manor stands beside the medieval parish church, on a site once occupied by Brooke House, which, according to tradition, once welcomed Elizabeth I as a guest.
In 1766 the manor was purchased by John Grubb and then passed through several hands until purchased by the Rothschild family. In 1925 the family presented the manor to the National Trust. It is now in private hands and is usually not open to visitors except for occasional heritage open days.
