Grade I moated brick manor set in spectacular English countryside.
The house, with its huge twisted 16th-century brick chimneys and 15th-century Great Hall, stands in extensive topiary gardens next to a Norman church and one of the finest turreted gatehouses in the country. In The Best Thousand Houses in England, Simon Jenkins refers to Upton Cressett as an 'Elizabethan gem'. The Hall and Gatehouse has a long tradition of hospitality, including hosting such historic figures as the eldest ‘Prince in the Tower’ – King Edward V - in 1483, Prince Rupert of the Rhine in 1646 and various prime ministers. After being restored by Sir Bill Cash MP and his wife Bridget in the early 1970s, the Hall is now the family home of writer William Cash and his wife Lady Laura Cash who has her millinery studio in the grounds.
The visit includes a short film on the restoration of the Hall and a tour of the property led by a family member, followed by a two-course lunch with a glass of wine.
Tickets £45.00 including lunch with wine.
