    Preston Manor

    Preston Manor

    Experience the charms of this delightful old Manor House which powerfully evokes the atmosphere of an Edwardian gentry home both ‘Upstairs’ and ‘Downstairs’.
    Home to the Stanford family for nearly 150 years, the house dates from 1250, was rebuilt in 1783 and added to in 1905. There are more than twenty rooms to explore over four floors – all superbly and lovingly renovated. From the servants’ quarters, kitchens and butler’s pantry in the basement, to the attic bedrooms and children’s day nursery on the top floor.
    The Manor also contains notable collections of silver, furniture, portraits and other memorabilia which give a rare insight into the conventions of upper-class Edwardian taste. Situated adjacent to Preston Park and the thirteenth-century parish church of St Peter, the Manor also comprises picturesque walled garden and a pets’ cemetery.
    Preston Manor is situated two miles north of Brighton seafront on the A23 London Road.
