Wickwight Manor is a large Victorian house with gardens just outside the city of Wolverhampton in South Staffordshire. The manor house is in the 'arts and crafts' style of the earlier Victorian period. There's quite a lot to see as you walk around, and check to see if there's a trail the kids can do. There are also some gardens to explore, with a picnic area by the lake.
We visited Wightwick Manor in the run-up to Christmas, and so the house was dressed with Christmas trees, lights, and presents.
The manor house has quite a homely and friendly feel to it, though many of the rooms are dark with the curtains shut to protect the interior.
There are lots of little details, so plenty of things to point out to your kids. There is both a nursery and a children's bedroom, which your kids might find interesting.
There is, of course, a tea room :-)
This one is built into the old stables.
We enjoyed our visit to Wightwick Manor. It's not as large as other National Trust locations, but there's enough to get the kids out for a few hours or more.
Facilities DetailsNote that dogs are only allowed in the garden. Large motorhomes are unable to park at Wightwick manor.
