Manor Hemmingford Grey: Built in the 1130s The Manor is one of the oldest continuously inhabited houses in Britain and much of the original house remains virtually intact in spite of various changes over nine hundred years. The house was made famous as the house of Green Knowe by Lucy Boston in her series of children's books. The manor is surrounded by four acres of garden renowned for its collection of over 200 old roses and a collection of irises containing many famous Dykes medal winners, most of them dating from the 1950s. There are hidden corners in the garden so visitors find themselves coming to unexpected parts where scented plants give the feeling of being in a cottage garden.
