History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The manor was built by Sir William Bonville, Sheriff of Devon, Somerset, and Dorset. The house was later owned by the de Grey family, Marquesses of Dorset, and it was they who added the 15th-century wing. Shute Barton is one of the best surviving and most important examples of a non-fortified manor house in England.
Shute Barton is now being used as holiday accommodation by the National Trust and is no longer regularly open to visitors. Accommodation sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms.
