"Chartley Manor" Uttoxeter Off The Beaten Path Tip by masc4s

Uttoxeter Off The Beaten Path: 19 reviews and 19 photos

Chartley Holme is a narrow area of about 2000 acres of land and about 70 residents attached to the Parish of Stowe, half of which is in the Lodge Farm Chartley, a hamlet and manor one mile N of Stowe. It was the property of Earl Ferrers, and in the past the principal seat of his family.

This is the view, as Mary Queen of Scots would have seen it approximately 450 years ago. Behind those trees, across the lake and to the left, is Chartley Manor.

Chartley Manor is a Grade II half timbered Elizabethan manor house set in it's own parkland opposite Chartley Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned.

Behind the studded front door you?ll discover panelled walls, a terracotta dining room and a wealth of oak beams. In the Sudbury yellow drawing room are the family portraits and superb furniture.

Well worth a visit and you can stay over for bed and breakfast.
