Winter visit to Kingston Bagpuize House and woodland
Kingston Bagpuize House sits in its beautiful garden and parkland in the Vale of the White Horse. The Manor dates back to Saxon times, it was rebuilt in 1542 and has passed through several hands until it was purchased by the current owner’s family in 1939.
It is very much a family home rather than a museum and we have a wonderful opportunity to visit the house with a conducted tour by the owner Virginia Grant.
After lunch there is a tour of the garden closer to the house, which has year-round interest, after which we are free to walk in the woodland which will be carpeted with a spectacular display of naturalised snowdrops.
Coffee/tea and biscuits will be provided on arrival and a lunch with desert and coffee/tea will be provided after the house tour.
