The present house, believed to sit on the site of a much earlier Manor, was probably started in around 1550 by Richard Cotton of Carmarthen, with later additions built by subsequent generations of the Cotton family who held the house through the 16th and 17th Centuries. It was clearly substantial because on September 9, 1592, Queen Elizabeth ‘dyned at Mr Cotons at Whytington’ on her Progress through Gloucestershire.

Visitors to the house are also welcome to enjoy the gardens and see the Tithe Barn (grade II*) built by Ralph Cotton in 1614, the Stables (grade II*) and St Bartholomew’s Church which dates from the 12th Century or perhaps earlier and might have been the chapel to an earlier house on the same site.
