A fascinating history
This unique manor house has a fascinating story and the painted exterior reflects the colourful characters who have called this magnificent house their home over the centuries. Famously, it is the birthplace of Dick Whittington (1352) who went on to be Mayor of London four times. Elinor Fettiplace, whose hand-written recipes from the 1600s were published in 1986, also grew up here. In 1932, Pauntley Court became the Gloucestershire Home for Wayfarers, established by the Poet Laureate, John Masefield. Guests are drawn in by Pauntley Court’s unique backstory.
