Woore Manor probably dates from Sir David Ap Cynrig in the Middle Ages and certainly from the 16th Century when record keeping began. Further additions were made to the property in the 17th and 18th Centuries. The Kenrick family originally owned the property from the early 17th Century until the mid 19th Century and again from 1965 until the present day.
Douglas Kenrick was the third generation of his branch of the family to be born in New Zealand. He always yearned to buy back his family's ancestral home and first visited Woore Manor in 1938. He and his wife both fell in love with the property on their honeymoon in 1942. After the war, he and his family moved permanently to the Far East, first Hong Kong, then Japan. When Woore Manor became available in 1965, he was successful in buying the property and became Lord of the Manor.
The Manor is approached through a splendid avenue of Beech and Lime trees including approximately two acres of formal gardens and a productive garden towards the rear along with tennis court. A number of improvements have been undertaken over the years including the majority of the sash windows being replaced yet still retaining the original shutters. There is a wealth of moulded ceiling cornices and roses with reception rooms having a ceiling height of 12 ft. The drawing, living and morning rooms are all on the side of the house with delightful views of the side gardens.
