When you walk through the door of The Manor the worries of the outside world feel to fall away. Step back in time is a fitting refrain to sum up this boutique accommodation where all the little extra things combine to make your break enjoyable and stress free. Perfect for families, friends or small groups, this cottage sleeps six in comfort, eight a little more cosily, and nine if you have a babe who is young enough to fit the travel cot. Old world meets new, retro styling and modern conveniences have been blended for the best of both worlds, with even a vintage cubby in the rear yard for the kids to enjoy.


You will not see anything like this in the Manning Valley; it is a truly unique historic yet comfortable accommodation option. Like its neighbour, The Cottage, it forms part of a National Trust listed streetscape for one section of Manchester Street. Air-conditioned, non-smoking (but with ashtrays provided outside for the smoker), complete with three televisions, children’s games and books, a Playstation 2, and DVDs and a stereo, all the family will enjoy staying. All linen is provided, with hire options for extras such as beach chairs and towels - view Extra Hire Options


A large wood-fired barbecue sits waiting for guests to utilise, cooking utensils and trays are provided in the kitchen, and with two large outdoor settings on the front deck and in the pergola at the back, comfort is paramount. The Manor is designed for entertaining. Many a day has mirth and merriment echoed through the backyards, it is THE perfect place for friends to gather. If you listen carefully you can almost hear the laughter of generations embedded in the old slab walls. 


Our four-legged friends have not been forgotten either. A Taj-Mah-Dog run in the secure second yard is complete with THREE igloo kennels for your canine best mate’s comfort if you need to go out for a day. We even provide a pooper-scooper to make it easy for you to clean up after your pet. We have dog identity tags to borrow for the duration of your stay if you wish. And all well-behaved animals are happily welcomed inside. Please read our pets section for all details and conditions.
