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.To plan Bristol vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
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.
Clevedon Court Reviews
This beautiful 14th century manor house still retains much of the features it started with despite many modifications over the centuries. There are many interesting paintings throughout the building..... more »
This small national trust property is still lived in by the family there is a fine collection of local glass. I particularly liked the collection bridge paintings on the stairs. more »
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!
