Washington Old Hall (National Trust)


Set in the heart of Washington village, next to Holy Trinity Church (known locally as the church on the hill), the Old hall is a delightful and unexpected find. The manor house, which dates from the seventeenth century incorporates part of the original 12th century manor, home of George Washington's ancestors. The hall has a fine collection of oak furniture of the period and displays on the history of George Washington and American independence. You can also enjoy a peaceful walk in the Paterre garden leading to the Nuttery (a wildflower nut orchard)
