Wilfred Manor is an expansive Grade I listed manor house, exceptionally restored to the finest standard of modern luxury, yet staying true to its long and prestigious history. King Charles I is in fact said to haunt the four acres of landscaped gardens, after he took refuge within the manor during the siege of Gloucester in 1643.

Each of the bedrooms have been given a unique theme that compliments the original 17th century architecture whilst offering spacious en-suits, exquisite furnishings. Each room offers a different perspective on the stunning landscape of the Cotswold Hills, including the woods above Slad Valley and the famous church spire of Painswick. 

A sought after wedding venue, the manor house can sleep up to 22 guests with access to extensive facilities including a jacuzzi and sauna, whilst catered for by a team of passionate staff. The local area remains tranquil and picturesque, yet offers a wealth of traditional English country past times such as horse riding, shooting and hiking.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • A rare chance to live inside a building with such a fascinating history.
  • A safe and secure private estate with plenty of parking space.
  • The location can provide for whatever level of activity you're looking for on your break at the manor, whether relaxing in the serene private gardens or exploring on horse riding and hunting excursions.

What you should know…

  • As the house is so old there are steep stairs and low ceilings in parts.
  • The property can be tricky to find due to the rural location.
  • Nearby roads are quite narrow and this can restrict some vehicles.
