This intimate manor house was the former home of medieval herbalist Henry Lyte; here visitors can learn about his famous 16th-century plant directory, Lytes Herbal.

The manor spans many years with its 14th-century chapel and 15th-century Great Hall. In the 20th century it was rescued from dereliction by Sir Walter Jenner, who refurbished the interiors in period style.

Its Arts & Crafts-style garden is an intimate combination of outdoor rooms, topiary, statues and herbaceous borders.

Explore the waymarked walks through the wider estate and riverside and uncover many features typical of farmed lowland England, including ancient hedges, rare arable weeds and farmland birds.
