Witley Court Description

An early Jacobean manor house, Witley Court was converted in the 19th century into a vast Italianate mansion with porticoes by John Nash. The spectacular ruins of this once-great house are surrounded by magnificent landscaped gardens - the 'Monster Work' of William Nesfield - which still contain immense stone fountains.

The largest of them, representing Perseus and Andromeda, once shot water 120 feet skywards, with 'the noise of an express train'.

Step back in time with a personal audio tour to relive the Court's Victorian heyday and hear stories of the extravagant parties and the 'upstairs, downstairs' lifestyle - perhaps you will even find yourself waltzing romantically across the ballroom!
