Knightshayes Court Houses
Victorian country house with richly decorated interiors and garden with outstanding plant collection.
Begun in 1869, Knightshayes is a rare survival of the work of designer William Burges. The interiors combine medieval romanticism with lavish Victorian decoration, and the smoking and billiard rooms, elegant boudoir and drawing room all give an atmospheric insight into the grand country house life which revolved around the Heathcoat-Amory family. A recently opened room shows original Burges designs, including furniture and wall-paintings. The celebrated garden features a water lily pool and topiary, specimen trees, rare shrubs and delightful seasonal colours.
Attractive woodland walks lead through the grounds. The newly restored kitchen garden displays a vast range of unusual culinary and herbaceous plants, many of which can be enjoyed from the restaurant menu.
