Rodmarton Manor is a unique Arts and Crafts Manor House containing furniture made locally and with a stunning early 20th-century garden.

The house and garden were designed for the Biddulph family by Ernest Barnsley, whilst his brother Sidney was the principle furniture maker. This house, although post Industrial Revolution was a return to earlier times with local materials, hand tools and craftsmanship.

Work started in 1909, stopped from 1914 to 1919 because of the First World War before the house was finally completed in 1929.

Visitors today will see original interiors, furniture, ceramics, ironwork and textiles all made in the early 20th-century by followers of the Cotswold Arts and Crafts movement such as the Barnsleys, Gimson, Waals, Alfred and Louise Powell. The original garden layout persists in the 8 acre garden with terrace, topiary, herbaceous borders and walled garden.

A few years ago, a member of the Royal Family visited Rodmarton Manor. They were wearing hobnail boots which marked the wooden floors, but my grandmother did not dare tell him off!
