Welcome to our family home
The original Manor House was built in 1660 and took the form of a three bay Jacobean Manor. It wasn’t until 1828 when the Estate was purchased by Sir Joseph Neeld, a London solicitor that many of the changes started to evolve. Sir Joseph was fortunate enough to inherit a large fortune from his silversmith uncle, which enabled him to redesign the house to represent that which you still see today.
Grittleton House is currently owned by the Shipp family, the house has been in their careful hands for more than 50 years, with many of the family residing on the Estate. Matthew Shipp says “Family is very important to us, five generations have had the pleasure of enjoying Grittleton House. It’s exciting times for us all, with lots of new ideas, some redecoration and a great line-up of professionals 2018 is set to be a very busy year for our full-time events venue. We have a record number of weddings booked and the diary is also full with exciting in-house events, birthday parties, balls, and taster evenings. Our Burns Evening in January was a real success, so much so that we are looking to re-run this in 2019. The Alfresco Cinema nights are always popular and we are confident that the launch of our own in-house Gin Club will go down a storm.”
