Medieval Manor House built in 1315 – The oldest property in Lee-on-Solent! Step back in time 700 years inside this privately owned and lovingly restored 14th century farmhouse.

The owners, Robert & Sue, will help you to explore many original features (and adaptations) within the gardens, ground floor and landing viewpoint of this timber frame and brick noggin property. See the cat slide roof, herringbone brick porch, ships timbers, Isle of Wight stone, two large inglenook fireplaces, bread oven and salt cupboard. The large elaborate chimney stack in the centre of the house is where you will find a hidden ‘priest hole’. There’s even a real medieval deep water well in the back garden!

This is a private home so children should be under strict supervision please. Event not suitable for children under the age of 12.
