WELCOME TO
SULGRAVE MANOR

A UNIQUE VENUE WITH A FASCINATING HISTORY

Sulgrave Manor is a Tudor and Georgian house built by direct ancestors of George Washington, the first President of the United States. Discover how Civil War, financial ruin, and a shipwreck led to Washington’s great-grandfather seeking a fresh start in the New World.

Explore Sulgrave Manor, which comes to life with costumed interpreters, interactive games and engaging displays. Set in a picturesque village some thirty miles from both Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon, Sulgrave Manor’s compact size, inviting gardens and café serving hot and cold drinks, light lunches and tasty homemade cakes, make it an ideal family destination.

Family Connections

This week we welcomed Marjorie Gaestel from the board of Directors at Happy Retreat, West Virginia, to Sulgrave. Happy Retreat was the home of Charles, George Washington’s brother. We learned so much about the wider Washington family thanks to Marjorie’s research and some fascinating facts which we will now be able to share with our visitors.
