Said to be the finest example of a small medieval manor in England, Cothay dates back to the 14th century, and has been lovingly restored with period furniture and fabrics by the current owners.

You enter the manor through the ancient Gatehouse into a courtyard, and then pass through the front door, with its 10inch key, to the Screens Passage. Off this passage is the Great Hall, with its magnificent roof, and gallery.

The Great Chamber: From here you will enter the following rooms: The Winter Parlour, The Dining Room, The Gold Room, The Oratory, The Guest Chamber, The Book Room, The Georgian Hall and The Great Chamber (pictured above). In each of these rooms you will find new treasures, from uncovered 15th century wall paintings to Stained Glass windows and 17th century oak panelling. Our guides will take you back to past times, as they lead you through the history of Cothay Manor.

From the first Sunday in April until the last Sunday in September, Guided House Tours are conducted for the General Public on most Sundays and all Bank Holidays.
