Historic Selly Manor in Bournville really is the most glorious place to spend a sunny afternoon. Or a rainy afternoon come to think of it. I think I’m probably a little biased, as I regularly volunteer at the Manor, but I stand by my statement all the same.
Selly Manor is the site of two timber-framed buildings – the Manor and Minworth Greaves, a small medieval hall. Both were saved by the Cadbury family in the early 20th century – at risk of demolition, they were moved from their original locations and re-built in picturesque Bournville.
Now is a great time to visit Selly Manor – the beautiful Tudor garden is in full swing – so this Sunday (27th June), Selly Manor will open for a Garden Day and Craft Fair from 11am – 4pm. As well as celebrating the garden, there will be over 20 stalls selling local and handmade crafts – from soap and cakes to jewellery and plants (and more!) Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for children.
Please note: the opening times and admission prices listed above are for the Garden Day and Craft Fair ONLY – please visit the Selly Manor website to find out more about usual opening times and admission prices.
