Clevedon Court

An imposing medieval manor house that has remained largely unchanged for centuries

  • Heritage
  • Museums

Clevedon Court was built in the early 14th century and still retains many of its medieval features today.

Surrounded by a verdant 18th century garden, the manor has been the much-loved family home of the Eltons for over 300 years. Clevedon court contains an impressive display of early 20th century Eltonware pottery - the creation of inventor and studio potter Sir Edmund Elton, 8th Baronet.

The house is still lived in by the Elton family so opening times are limited - check the website for full details. 

Did you know?

With visits from Tennyson, Coleridge and Thackeray, the Elton family (who still live in part of the house) have long been part of the literary world. Even the current Baronet, Charles Elton, has written several best sellers.
