Manor House Ruins & Museum

A stay at Barnsley Resort is not complete without a visit to the 19th century Manor House Ruins. From the first approach on Manor House Lane, guests are delighted to discover a classic - and well-preserved - boxwood parterre before entering the walls of the once grand manor home.

After exploring the remnants of the original mansion, guests shouldn't miss the Barnsley Museum, located within the original kitchen wing attached to the home.  An extensive display of personal belongings from multiple generations of the Barnsley Family brings the colorful story to life, along with a display of Civil War era artifacts.

Learn more about this intriguing history in Clent Coker's lauded book, Barnsley Gardens at Woodlands: The Illustrious Dream.
