Long Crendon Manor

Step through centuries of history, crafted into one unforgettable Lodge...

Over the year it has featured as the backdrop for many films and TV shows, Midsummer Murders for one and most recently, The Woman in Black. Originally, a dwelling for the abbots of Notley in 1187, the east and west wings were added by the 15th century, before renowned architect Philip Tilden restored and extended the Manor to its current magnificence in the 1920s.

The manor is both cosy, spacious and full of charm, the rooms equally so. Both of which are en Suite. Fine linens, comfortable beds, goose down duvets, hospitality trays and more can be found in each bedroom. One room even has an adjacent room, perfect for children, making this an ideal location for families. Be sure to enquire at the time of booking!

Guests are more than welcome to make use of the oak-paneled drawing room complete with log burning fire, the medieval hall with its 'twin truss and crown post' structure, croquet lawn and swimming pool to relax and unwind.

In true country fashion, there is more than meets the eye… under the current stewardship of the Soars, the Manor has an industrious angle to its daily life. Beside the livery stables, there are rare breed pigs and an orchard. Breakfast is plentiful and the posh pork sausages are excellent, as is the homemade cider.

Your B&B Hosts

Expect a warm welcome from Sue, Tim and Hatty the family St Bernard, accompanied by tea and biscuits. You will be well looked after by these experienced Lodges. After a successful career as a hotelier, Sue now dedicates herself to her B&B guests and the day to day running of Long Crendon Manor as well as their rare-breed pigs. Tim runs his own interim executive business, and they have three children.


Long Crendon village itself has a beautiful winding High Street with many thatched cottages, two old pubs and St. Mary's church at the end, next to Long Crendon Courthouse, one of the National Trust's first ever properties.

This is a fantastic location to explore wonderful attractions such as the Oxford Botanic Garden, The University of Oxford, Blenheim Palace and other National Trust properties, a museum and golf club.
