Kelmscott Manor

Only a short drive away from your cosy room and you will find Kelmscott Manor, the former residency of British pioneer William Morris. With a collection spanning over 300 years of British arts and crafts, this is certainly not your ordinary Cotswold cottage.

A Unique And Intriguing Cotswold Cottage

This Grade I-listed building holds significant cultural and historical importance, primarily due to its association with the renowned British designer, writer, and socialist William Morris.

Our bed and breakfast accommodation has received a prestigious four gold star rating from The AA. Nestled in a peaceful courtyard adorned with blooming roses, our six rooms offer a true sense of home away from home. They are thoughtfully designed with vintage furnishings, feature vegan and environmentally conscious British bath and body products, boast either rain showers or elegant claw-foot tubs, and provide spacious double or kingsize beds.

Emphasizing the use of the finest local ingredients, especially the abundant fish and seafood from our local sources, The Trout Inn’s menus showcase seasonal dishes and innovative twists on traditional pub favourites.

A Brief Overview of Kelmscott Manor

The interior of Kelmscott Manor is a testament to Morris’s design philosophy. Visitors can see his intricate wallpaper and fabric patterns, furniture, stained glass, and other decorative elements, all of which showcase his commitment to high-quality craftsmanship and a connection to nature. The manor’s design reflects Morris’s rejection of mass production and embrace of artisanal techniques.

The manor is set amidst beautiful gardens, meadows, and orchards, which served as a source of inspiration for Morris and his fellow artists. The gardens feature a variety of plants, including those featured in Morris’s textile and wallpaper designs. The serene surroundings contribute to the tranquil and idyllic atmosphere of Kelmscott Manor.
