About Sulgrave Manor
Built by the ancestors of George Washington and saved from ruin by donors from both the UK and USA, Sulgrave Manor is the original home of the Special Relationship. Some of the most influential people on both sides of the Atlantic funded the restoration of Sulgrave Manor, the home of George Washington’s English ancestors, as part of the centenary commemorations for the Treaty of Ghent which established peace between Britain and the United States of America after the War of 1812.

Yew hedges divide the garden into rooms, each one with its own atmosphere. Topiary peacocks welcome visitors at the front door and densely planted borders ensure botanical interest from spring through to autumn. The Tudor Villagers Garden boasts historic vegetables and herbs, whilst mature trees provide shaded seating and stunning autumn colour. Heritage fruit trees grow in the orchard and there’s a designated Silent Space should you wish to simply sit back and enjoy views of the surrounding rolling countryside.
