VISIT TO COTHAY MANOR AND GARDENS

Greenham, Wellington 

Said to be the finest example of a small medieval manor in England, Cothay dates back to the 14th century, and has been lovingly restored with period furniture and fabrics by the current owners.

You enter the manor through the ancient Gatehouse into a courtyard, and then pass through the front door, with its 10” key, to the Screens Passage. Off this passage is the Great Hall, with its magnificent roof and gallery.

From here you will enter the following rooms: The Winter Parlour, The Dining Room, The Gold Room, The Oratory, The Guest Chamber, The Book Room, The Georgian Hall and The Great Chamber. In each of these rooms you will find new treasures, from uncovered 15th century wall paintings to Stained Glass windows and 17th century oak panelling. Our guides will take you back to past times, as they lead you through Cothay’s history. 

A Ploughman's Lunch has been booked in the Tea Rooms.  Tour of the Manor and visit the gardens. 

Cost per person £35.
