    Worth a visit
    An interesting manor house brought to life by the artefacts and furniture on display and the knowledgeable tour guides. The gardens are beautifully kept. This was a group tour and our morning started with a pre-booked coffee/tea and biscuits.

    History!
    Peaceful village location, interesting museum room with the story of the Washington ancestry, knowledgeable guide spoke of history of family & house prior to visiting the rooms. Spent time the gardens after. Very enjoyable afternoon, only slightly marred by (understandably) not having an open tea room.

    Wonderful place to visit
    I took my daughters at Christmas time to Sulgrave Manor and Gardens. The event was very well organised. Lots of crafts to keep the kids entertained before meeting Santa and beautiful gardens to explore. Worth a visit any time of the year

    Wonderful day at an interesting house and beautiful gardens
    We had a lovely day out at Sulgrave Manor during July 23 as part of the Gardeners World 2 for 1 scheme. As a previous reviewer has mentioned, we were greeted by a very friendly lady in a gorgeous gift shop. We then listened to an incredibly informative talk in the house and afterwards were left to wander around at our own pace. The house itself isn’t huge but very interesting. There is no cafe, sadly, but they do have tea and coffee on an honesty basis and you can buy cake in their gift shop. We bought a picnic which we ate in the gardens and then wandered round. Again, not particularly large but interesting non-the-less. There was also lots to keep children occupied which was very cleverly done without taking over the gardens. The whole experience was beautifully handled with what must be tricky times for an independent historic house. One small criticism is that they don’t have a guide book, something I hope they will rectify. We would definitely recommend a visit.

    Really enjoyable place to visit
    Sulgrave Manor stands out for its very welcoming staff and volunteers, the excellent way in which information is presented in each room, and its lovely gardens. The whole place appears well cared for and the introductory talk in the Great Hall was interesting and put the Manor in context. You can take your time looking round and the volunteers are always ready and able to answer any questions. Very enjoyable visit.

This was a lovely place to.visit , The home of the Washington Family who produced George the 1st President of the Unites States. Unfortunately the House wasn't open on the day we visited, but we walked round the gardens which were beautiful.

We've visited Sulgrave a few times in the past but this is the first time since 2017. In the past a tour of the manor was with a guide but now it is free-flow. I prefer free-flow but saying that the guided tours in the past were quite good but because some of the rooms are small, free-flow is probably better. There is, however, a 10-15 minute talk at certain times that gives an overview of the property & its links with George Washington. If you don't know the history of the manor I would recommend the talk. The gardens have been revamped since our last visit & we were particularly impressed with the alpine garden & its accompanying glasshouse. This property has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, set if quiet countryside. The staff were helpful & pleasant so I recommend it.

First visit here but very interesting and we were welcomed by a lovely young lady in the reception area who arranged coffees and cake for us. All in all a worthwhile visit.

Guide gave a very interesting introduction to the house and its history. Time to explore the house at leisure, walk round the gardens and see the exhibition. Refreshments available.
