Join us for a visit to the historic Hellens Manor.
It is the oldest historic house in England, a Tudor/Jacobean home with an intriguing history. Set in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside it contains a wealth of period furnishings, paintings and attractions including heirlooms of Anne Boleyn and the haunted bedchamber of Queen Mary Tudor. Along the way our guide will tell us many quirky and amusing stories of the various families who have lived there. The gardens and grounds are designed to reflect their Tudor/Jacobean history and has views to the Malvern Hills.
We will be travelling by coach departing from the Masonic Hall 99 Bath Road Keynsham BS31 1SR with a stop in Tewkesbury at approximately 11am where we will have time for a stroll round or perhaps visit the Abbey and have some lunch before departure at 1pm for the short journey to Hellens in time for our 1.30pm house tour.
Afterwards there will be time to stroll the grounds and visit the 16th century cider mill and the shed housing the family's opulent 1870s Derby Coach. We will be departing at approximately 3.45pm for our return to Keynsham breaking the journey at Gloucester Services before arriving back early evening.
