Barhams Manor

Barhams Manor is home to Idyllic Suffolks Owners Major Charles and Sara Fenwick. Barhams Manor at Suffolk was constructed on the foundations of a Roman Villa, during the booming years of this Suffolk wool trade from the late fifteenth century. This timeless hallway house was extended from the sixteenth century, though portions of the original Tudor features remain, such as the Tudor wall painting at the Requiem Room.

From the late eighteenth century that the Suffolk corn trade has been flourishing and the house underwent a significant Georgian remodelling which surrounded the Tudor construction.
Now, Barhams is a well loved English home which appears to enfold you with each room supplied with old and stunning pieces.
The grounds and gardens are equally striking, Important Fenwick has a professional interest in garden style and with George Carter, has produced a collection of romantic and formal gardens.
