Cotswold Wildlife Park - Manor House

The listed Gothic style Manor House was built in 1804 to replace a previous Jacobean residence, and is at the centre of the 3,000 acres of Bradwell Grove Estate, where for many centuries farming and forestry have been practised in a way typical of life in the Cotswolds.

John Heyworth inherited the estate from his grandfather, Colonel Heyworth-Savage, in 1949. Twenty years later he decided to create a Wildlife Park which opened to the public in 1970.

Parts of the house are open to visitors. The former dining-room is now a brass rubbing centre and the drawing-room, library and conservatory, now host conferences and meetings.

The stables and outbuildings have been converted into class-rooms, the Siamang House, the Reptile House and the Bat Belfry, plus various support services.
