Come along and visit two of Birmingham's oldest houses. These two beautiful timber-framed manor houses were actually moved and rebuilt in the village of Bournville by the Cadbury family. Both timber-framed houses have beautiful oak furniture and domestic objects.

Selly Manor was originally about a mile away from its present site. Dating to at least 1327 it is a medieval manor house with Tudor extensions. It is thought to have been built by the Jouette family who were the local lords of the tithing (tax collectors), but unfortunately little is known of its early history. Gradually over time it became less important and by the late 19th century the house had been divided into three tenements.

The garden has been recreated as a Tudor garden that might have served these manor houses. We have a kitchen garden of raised beds to grow vegetables and herbs, and a variety of fruit trees. You can visit the woodland section which represents the forest that would have dominated this area. .
