Old Soar Manor

Old Soar Manor is a small but nevertheless complete portion of stone manor house built c. 1290. Nestled in a remote position within the Kent countryside, on the edge of the picturesque North Downs, this rare survival of 13th century domestic architecture gives an illuminating impression of the life of a rich medieval family.

The manor originally belonged to leading Kentish family the Culpeppers, and would have consisted of a great hall from around which a number of withdrawing rooms were located. Although the timber hall no longer remains, the private quarters do, and visitors to the site can still view the surviving solar, latrine and chapel that were once an integral part of this family home.

Please note: No dogs are allowed, except for guide dogs. Limited parking is available.
