Wightwick Manor and Gardens - National Trust and its collection

Wightwick Manor and Gardens - National Trust
Source

The legacy of a family's passion for Victorian art and design. In 1937 Geoffrey Mander, a local paint manufacturer and Liberal MP, did something remarkable – he persuaded the National Trust to accept a house for the nation that was just 50 years old. The house is a notable example of the influence of William Morris, with original Morris wallpapers and fabrics, De Morgan tiles, Kempe glass and Pre-Raphaelite works of art, including works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Evelyn De Morgan, Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown, John Everett Millais, and Elizabeth Siddal. The house hosts 17 acres of gardens and woodland, shop, tearoom and art Gallery.

    Once entered the feeling of stepping back in time is almost overwhelming. The building is inviting you to search and explore, it is welcoming you in. The feeling of a home is more than evident and unlike so many other places Wightwick Manor makes you feel at home. I visited with a stroppy 16 year old who is reluctant to do anything other than look at her phone and computer yet this building awoken her interest and desire to marvel at the grandeur, it was such a pleasure to hear the word WOW from her lips and for that gift alone the visit was more than I or her mother could wish for. A truly awesome experience and one which I could never be able to recommend more.
