Sutton Manor - Lifestyle
Sutton Manor offers a blend of high quality care within an extensive parkland setting. The Grade II listed manor house, dating from the Queen Anne period, offers wide-ranging views across the grounds, which include the former walled rose garden; a favourite haunt of Dirk Bogarde and Marilyn Monroe on their many visits to Lord Rank’s estate.
The atmosphere at the Manor is one of tranquility and spaciousness. The expansive surroundings, with 25 acres of peaceful private gardens and 35 acres of parkland, are perfect for leisurely walks and exercising pets. Situated to the south of the Manor is the Nursery area with its greenhouses supplying fresh flowers and plants for all Amesbury Abbey Group Nursing Homes.
Breakfast is brought to your room each morning. Uniformed waiting staff serve principal meals in the Manor dining room overlooking the grounds and gardens and wine may be taken with your meal. If you prefer a little privacy on occasion, or are feeling under the weather, arrangements can be made so that you can also enjoy your main meal in the comfort of your own room.
Mealtimes are always an occasion at Sutton Manor, particularly our regular themed and gala celebrations. These popular events including Marquees on the lawns, Summer BBQ's and gala dinners to celebrate special events, all carefully crafted and arranged by our chef and Catering Manager James Hoare.
Sutton Manor has been owned and operated by Mary Cornelius-Reid and her family for 24 years. As such, we pride ourselves on being able to offer those little touches that make everyone feel truly special.
For example, unlike most corporately owned establishments, residents are most welcome to furnish their own rooms; the results are often stunning. Pets are welcome by prior arrangement and personal touches, like birthday cards and thoughtful gifts at Christmas, help ensure everyone feels part of the family.
Guests are also welcome at the Manor. Whether joining us for luncheon or extending their stay in our en-suite guest room, all we ask for is a little notice to ensure that we can cater for their needs.
The Cathedral City of Winchester lies just 7 miles to the south and Stockbridge, with its traditional Hampshire ‘broad street’, offering restaurants, tearooms, shops and a popular butcher, lies just 7 miles to the west. The Manor is also ideally located to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and a wealth of local history.
An activities schedule is also available for all to enjoy, more of which can be seen via this link.
