This early Jacobean manor house was begun by Richard Nelthorpe of Glandford Brigg (1569—1640) in 1605 and has been lived in by members of the Nelthorpe family ever since. The building is Grade-I listed and contains a number of important paintings including five by George Stubbs.
Open for 28 days each year, this family-sized gem contains some impressive examples of Georgian and Regency furniture, as well as an extensive collection of items brought back from the Orient.
