Witley Court

Romantic ruins

Witley Court

Imposing Witley with its huge fountains and grand gardens lay neglected for years after a major fire in 1937. English Heritage took over in 1972 to begin restoration work on the exterior walls and the gardens, including intricate parterres, restored with the aid of the Wolfson Foundation.

Marvel at the skeleton of this palatial house and enjoy the grounds, lake and imposing Perseus and Andromeda Fountain.

Don’t miss the totally gorgeous Italianate Baroque Great Witley Church, attached to Witley Court but not managed by English Heritage.
