The perfect setting for a wedding. Brilliantly helpful staff from start to finish. I visited several times unannounced to ask this or look at that and even when they were surrounded by school pupils on a trip, they could not have been more accommodating!!

We visited Selly Manor as part of the open day and really enjoyed our visit. There was medieval dancer's in the gardens and the manor is very impressive considering it was moved bit by bit to Bournville.
