History

The estate of Tortworth has been home to many eminent Dukes, Lords, Knights and Barons over its hundreds of years of history. Records begin as far back as the reign of Edward I (The Hammer of the Scots) in the late 13th century, when the manor was owned by Sir Nicholas Kingston.

After changing hands a number of times, the manor was occupied by the Ducie family for over 300 years, before the current mansion was constructed in 1849.

The fascinating edifice was designed and wrought in the Gothic Tudor style coming into fashion at the time, and following a number of additions and restorations, today resembles something between a substantial country manor house and a castle - thoroughly beautiful both inside and out.
