Clevedon Court

Clevedon Court is a 14th century manor house but with much of the original building dating back to earlier times. There is a 12th century tower and a 13th century great hall. The property is set in a well landscaped 18th century terraced garden with several outbuildings and an impressive wall to the rear of the property.

This has been the home to the Elton family since 1709 and their descendants still live here at Clevedon Court. The house contains a collection of glassware and some impressive paintings and furniture.
We have visited many National Trust properties but it has to be said that the official representatives at this particular property really do make their visitors feel most welcome. Each representative talked with ease and knowledge about Clevedon Court and it was obvious that they spoke about their subject with a passion all to rare these days.

This property is open from the end of March until the end of September on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Last admission is 30 minutes before closing time.
