Yarnton Manor is a 17th Century Manor House, built in 1611 by the wealthy Spencer family.

It’s long and fascinating history has left an indelible mark on the fabric of the building. The estate has changed hands several times over the centuries, with each successive custodian contributing to its story.

Now Grade II* listed in recognition of its special historic interest, much of what survives is original, or restored sympathetically at the close of the 19th Century.

The Manor has been entertaining and inspiring visitors for centuries and it’s easy to see why: surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and agricultural land, Yarnton Manor’s setting could hardly be more picturesque.


The house is only open to public for special events or to groups by appointment.


Groups may visit the house and garden by appointment.
