Stokesay Court offers a wonderful opportunity to view an intact late Victorian interior in a still very much lived-in private home. It is one of the earliest houses in England built with integral electric light, became a military hospital for wounded soldiers during WWI but then disappeared into obscurity after WWII. A time capsule emerged following the death of Lady Magnus-Allcroft in 1992, but the contents were sold at auction. Her niece took over and has rescued, restored, and refurnished it. Stokesay shot to fame following the filming of “Atonement” in the summer of 2006.
The house offers breathtaking views of the Clee Hills, and a stunning English oak interior. In addition to our popular tours.
