Sandford Orcas Manor House Description

Sandford Orcas Manor as it stands today was built by William Knoyle, who inherited the land in the early 1530s. It was built in the mid 16th Century from the local Ham Hill stone. This Manor House is complete with arched gatehouse, stable courtyard and walled garden and is a lovely example of the small Manor Houses that once studded Tudor England and is virtually unaltered inside and out.

Your Reviews of Sandford Orcas Manor House

Alec Hamilton (24 August 2010)

The admission price was £5 not £4 when we went! However, well worth the visit. Sir Mervyn is a great guide, genial and relaxed, and the house is full of interest and surprises.
