Party
Visits
Whether your group spends the whole day, or just an hour on the Estate, Lord and Lady Walpole hope you will have an enjoyable and memorable visit.

The extensive and varied gardens at Mannington Hall display all-year-round colour, and surround the medieval moated manor house.  There is an outstanding rose collection, including the Heritage Rose Gardens in the old walled garden and orchard. Wildflowers are encouraged around the lakes and ruined church. Unusual trees and shrubs are featured throughout.
We suggest organisers discuss specific requirements with us before your visit.  Visits are possible outside public opening season and times.  In order to obtain your party rate, each group that you bring should book at least 2 weeks in advance, paying for a minimum of 15 people when the booking form is returned to us.
