This Tudor farmhouse, located adjacent to the River Thames, was built of local limestone in 1570. Later, the Manor became the Cotswold retreat of William Morris and his family, friends and colleagues. When Morris first saw the Manor in 1871, he was delighted by this 'loveliest haunt of ancient peace'; he signed a joint lease for the property with his friend and colleague Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the Pre-Raphaelite artist. Today, the Manor welcomes more than 20,000 visitors each year (between April and October) who come to explore this special place that provided inspiration to Morris and others. Adult ticket price is £9.00 (but concessions are available).
