Kingston Maurward House was built in 1590 and replaced an earlier Manor House built 200 years before. The large Grade I listed Georgian country house is now used by Kingston Maurward College and off-limits to visitors but much of the lovely 35 acres of gardens, lake and farm areas are open to the public.
