PEBWORTH MANOR – THE 19th CENTURY BEAUTY
Pebwoth Manor was built in 1849 and is well known for the famous Redwood Wellingtonia that proudly sits on the hill, now some 34 metres high and can be seen for miles. Much of the planting scheme was completed around the same time and boasts Scots and Austrian Pine Trees, Cedar of Lebanon, Weeping Ash and a host of other specimen trees.
Many of the fruit trees were also well planned for self-sufficiency; apples, pear, cherries, plums. Blackcurrants, redcurrants, white currants, raspberries and the ubiquitous strawberry. The current owners have enhanced the vegetable garden to produce just about everything you could want to eat. The most favourite task is picking fruit from the Victorian Quince tree and making delicious Quince jelly for guests to savour and enjoy in their welcome baskets.
With a magnificent 34 mile view across to the Malvern Hills facing, sitting with a glass of wine at sunset makes for a perfect ending to the day.
The Coach House and the Stable Barn were built at the same time to serve the Shekel family, then owners of Pebworth Manor.
As the Shekels received their guests, visiting coachmen would receive hospitality such as ale, bread and cheese and the use of a trundle bed overnight.
