Best Uk Country Manor for a 2-3 Lord of the Manor experience

Jump to last reply

Travelling with two teen age girls, the usual route, London, York, Bath, Cotswolds in some combination of train and car rental. Will likely rent an apartment in London.

Looking for a manor stay recommendation.

Parents are design and architecture fans who read out of print architecture books on UK churches and manor homes. One parent is an agricultural economist. Would like to spend 2-3 days in a stylishly dilapidated english country manor of architectural interest that might allow for horseback riding and local touring or other country pursuits to keep the teens busy. Traditional style without being Downton Abbey formal. Maybe the kind of place that has dogs shedding on the cumfy sofas and where there is still a keen interest in horses and gardens and near where real farming still takes place. Not really looking for the full on globalized luxurious hotel, but more a window into a way of life of the Lord of the Manor that is all but gone. (we are also renting a peasant cottage elsewhere to contrast the life.....)

Any recommendations?
