Originally furnished by his father, Wightwick was inherited by Geoffrey Mander, a local liberal MP and paint manufacturer who fought social injustice and European fascism and felt the need to share this unique property with the nation.

Wightwick remains an enchanting and enthralling place to visit, and a most unusual gallery, with works by renowned Pre-Raphaelites including Rossetti, Burne-Jones and their followers.

Outside, visitors can take a stroll around the formal gardens, created by Thomas Mawson, one of the foremost Arts & Crafts garden designers, explore the rose garden, or wander through the informal gardens with their two pools.

So, take a step back in time and visit the ever-changing family home that's also an unlikely art gallery, visit the specialist shop selling William Morris inspired gifts, or enjoy locally grown food in the stable-block tea-room.
