Manor House | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 18

Flore Manor is a Grade II Listed House and is constructed of ashlar ironstone with a slate roof. The front entrance has a 19th Century grey sandstone porch, accessed from the centre of the village of Flore. The architectural features are apparent throughout, with stone mullion windows, gable bays and a coat of arms. The current owners have undertaken an extensive programme of restoration and renovation over the last 5 years, whilst retaining the majority of the period features including large stone fireplaces, moulded cornices, panelling and a mixture of wood and stone floors as well as fine doors.

It is ideal for entertaining with the impressive reception hall and dining room. The house is well laid out with a large number of bedrooms and bathrooms, many of which enjoy stunning views of the gardens and parkland to the rear of the house.

The History

Flore Manor is steeped in history. The Enyon family bought the two manors of Flore in 1610 and 1623, and the original Jacobean part of the house dates back to this time. Specifically, it was built in 1608. The house was much remodeled and extended in the 19th Century and early 20th Century, with both Georgian and Edwardian additions. A full history of Flore manor, its people and estate was written by John M Smith in 1999.

The House has recently been refurbished by its current owners.
