Wickham Manor B&B near Rye, East Sussex


Welcome to Wickham Manor, a National Trust-owned 16th Century Manor House nestled within our 750-acre mixed farm and the Charles Palmer vineyard, surrounding the ancient town of Winchelsea. In the 17th Century it was owned by Pennsylvania founder, William Penn. The Manor was divided into four cottages in the late 19th Century, then converted back into a single dwelling during the 1920s. It has been home to The Palmer Family since 1998 and Sally had previously run it as a B&B for the last 21 years.

Due to the pandemic in 2020, the family and I made the decision to split the Manor into three wings, offering two private accommodations for guests, along with a separate wing for us. This means we are now able to offer a much safer stay, with private gardens, parking and entrances. Spoilt with sea views, Winchelsea is a 20-minute walk via the 1066 footpath which runs directly through the farm and past the Manor, making it a perfect stay for keen explorers.

Wickham Manor featured as Sherlock Holmes’ residence in the 2015 movie Mr Holmes, starring Ian McKellen. It was also used as Lord Snowdon's country retreat in The Crown (Season 3 - Episode 10) on Netflix
