For the lovers of fine furniture given to us by the arts and crafts movement this place is a must. The furniture on display is a timeless collection of the superb workmanship of these bygone masters. The house itself also offers a very interesting incite into the life and times of these artisans. Pity about the condition of the gardens... More

The house is still a gem especially if you are a connoisseur of twentieth century furniture. The Gardens must have been a rival to Hidcote in the past and one of the best and most interesting in the country. Unfortunately with only 1 and a half gardeners there is just too much to do in this very high maintenance and... More

If you are a fan of the Arts & Crafts Movement, then you must visit Rodmarten Manor. The external view is not a thing of beauty but internally it is delightful and the furnishings are a joy. The garden is in need of tlc and sad to see the tennis court and swimming pool so neglected. the saddest part is... More

On a grey morning we visited Rodmarton Manor Gardens and what shall I say - definitely mixed emotions. For sure the gardens have had better times and when you just imagine how it must have been ages ago, you can imagine that it has been a gorgeous garden. Lots of great views, lovely topiaries and really great structure especially at... More

Rodmarton is an Arts & Crafts classic, the last great manor house built in the style made famous by William Morris (and currently undergoing a long-term restoration). Though its architecture fits in perfectly with the Elizabethan mansions dotting the Cotswolds, its pride is the beautiful Arts & Crafts workmanship of its construction and furnishings, from the stone produced in local...

Rodmarton Manor is a country house constructed in the early twentieth century. In the arts and crafts style, it was built and furnished by local Cotswold craftsmen, so there are some excellent examples of their work. The house and garden are both somewhat neglected, but that somehow seems to give them additional charm. The gardens are extensive. The Manor and... More

We visited Rodmarton because of the Arts and Crafts connections and the garden. Indeed there is a lot of beautiful furniture and other pieces in the house. The room guides (one in particular) were helpful and knowledgable. However, as a volunteer at National Trust house I was frustrated because so much more could have been made of this interesting property.... More

The house is in a quiet spot on a country lane away from the main road. Parking is in a field adjacent to it. Helpful room guides. Lovely panel work and wooden ceiling beams downstairs. Faded glory on the first floor(rags/shirts left on windowsills to absorb the water when it rains!) The gardens have well stocked borders and there is... More

We organised a group tour from our local church, and had a wonderfully informative afternoon being taken round the Arts and Craft Manor House, followed by an hour wandering in the delightful gardens. Surprises round every corner, and seemingly never ending. Would highly recommend. Not grand, but absolutely fascinating.

A good collection of furniture in a house of the period and in many cases made for the house. An interesting tour with a knowledgeable guide able to talk about the Estate and the characters involved in the Arts and Craft Movement in this part of Gloucestershire. The gardens are rather neglected although they are still lovely. I understand there... More
