HISTORIC HOUSES MEMBERS ONLY

The Manor House has been owned by the Pitt-Rivers family for four centuries and the current owners will provide an insight into the interesting story of their medieval manor house and this important family's vital role in the preservation of this beautiful estate down the centuries. The garden was originally laid out between 1888 and 1902.

Yarlington House is a classic Georgian manor house, steeped in history and set in stunning gardens. Following a 2 course hot lunch served with wine or juice upon arrival, we will enjoy separate tours of the house, built of red brick in 1785 by John Rogers, and the gardens which will be at their best in mid-June. The house contains 18th century furniture, fireplaces and oak panelling and our host is one of the world's leading experts on Napoleon and owns many interesting paintings related to this period of history. There will be plenty of time to ask questions over tea before our departure.

£58 including a 2-course lunch at Yarlington House with a glass of wine or non-alcoholic alternative and tea at the conclusion of the tour.
