With humble beginnings as a Cistercian monastic house in 1154, Stoneleigh Abbey was converted at the Dissolution into a comfortable family home.
One of the seats of the Leigh family, Stoneleigh Abbey has played house to several people of note, including King Charles I, Queen Victoria, and novelist Jane Austen.
Enjoy exploring the extensive grounds and woodlands at Stoneleigh Abbey, with an abundance of birds and wildlife. During the winter months you can take a stroll along the River Avon that runs through the grounds and see the Leigh family pet cemetery or the restored pump house.
Please note, the main house is only accessed via guided tours.
