    Wilfred Manor sleeping up to 22 guests

    Resting peacefully on a stunning four acre estate in the heart of the Cotswolds, Wilfred Manor is an exceptional Grade I manor house, restored to the finest standard yet maintaining characterful nods to its incredible past. Located in Painswick, Gloucestershire, the home boasts stunning views of the Slad Valley and surrounding countryside. It is the perfect place for a memorable countryside break with total privacy, beauty, tranquility and wonderful access to entertainment including race days at Cheltenham, local gin tasting plus the delights of picturesque villages including Sheepscombe, Edge and Slad. The world famous Rococo Gardens and Gloucester Cathedral are also close by.

    The history of Wilfred Manor is fascinating. The earliest recorded Lord of the Manor was Ernist in 1050 when Painswick was known as Wyke. Over centuries the Manor dominated local life and Pain FitzJohn, the Lord from 1121 to 1137, is thought to have given his name to the town, hence ‘Pain’s-wyke’. The original Manor was demolished in 1445 and rebuilt and was fully functioning as a court until 1831. The original stocks can be seen outside the gates. King Charles I stayed at the Manor prior to the Siege of Gloucester in 1743. Throughout this magnificent property, you will discover fabulous characterful rooms with enormous fireplaces, beams and vaulted ceilings, all nods to its intriguing past. Each of its sensational rooms offers stunning garden and landscape views, including the woods above Slad Valley and the famous church spire of Painswick.
