Manor House 1690 offers a thoughtful collection of British made, artisan and antique items for the home available from a 17th century manor house in Crowland, Lincolnshire, England. Its current custodian, Sophie Wilson, an artist and designer, lived in London for several years before moving to the fens in 2015 with her family. She fell in love with the manor and is determined to see it sensitively restored.
The shop operates from the patterned hall on the ground floor, accessed conveniently from East Street, between Crowland's historic 8th century Benedictine abbey and the rare Trinity Bridge, a three-way stone arch structure which dates back to the 14th century.
The Manor House is a substantial, 10 bedroomed listed building built in 1551, home to the Wilson family: three young children, a chocolate Labrador, an Italian greyhound, an unremarkable black cat and most recently, a very remarkable stray one.
Manor House 1690 is open by appointment. Please email 24 hours in advance to arrange a visit.
