The Manor

The intriguing timber-framed grade I listed Manor is currently the family home of the Cliffords, and is an amalgamation of building programmes and styles which date from the 13th to the 17th centuries. It is understood that Jane Clifford was born here in the 12th century. Jane is better known from folklore and legend as Fair Rosamund, mistress of Henry II whom he named his 'Rose of the World'.

The Manor is surrounded by a diverse and extensively planted garden consisting of mature herbaceous borders, topiary, wild flower garden and a magnificent kitchen garden and orchard. A charming detail in the garden is the striking red and white striped rose ‘Rosa Mundi’ - Rosa gallica versicolour, a sport of the ‘Apothecary’s Rose’ - which is said to be named after Fair Rosamund.

Delicious seasonal, home-grown, organic fruit and veg from the garden at The Manor are highlights on the breakfast menu for guests staying at Frampton Court, and for tour groups having lunch or tea at The Wool Barn. The Gloucester Old Spot pigs are reared in the orchard at The Manor and provide scrumptious bacon and sausages.
