Clevedon Court, Bristol

4.1
Clevedon Court is a manor house on Court Hill in Clevedon, North Somerset, England, dating from the early 14th century. It is now owned by the National Trust. It is designated as a Grade I listed building.
The house was built and added to over many years. The great hall and chapel block are the earliest surviving parts of the structure with the west wing being added around 1570, when the windows and decoration of the rest of the building were changed. Further construction and adaptation was undertaken in the 18th century when it was owned by the Elton baronets. The house was acquired by the nation and was given to the National Trust in part-payment for death duties in 1960. The Elton family is still resident in the house, which is now open to the public.

In addition to the main house, the grounds include a selection of walls and outbuildings, some of which date back to the 13th century. The gardens are listed (Grade II*) on the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

  • A really unusual collection of items and excellent knowledge by the NT guides makes this a memorable place. The house itself is not huge but the history and architecture is interesting too. Well worth a visit.
  • Lovely house and grounds. Informative and enthusiastic volunteers. You don't need much time to look around the house. Keep an eye out for the geese!
