Activity Overview

Outstanding 14th-century manor house and 18th-century terraced garden Home to the lords of the manor of Clevedon for centuries, the core of the house is a remarkable survival from the medieval period. The house was purchased by Abraham Elton in 1709 and it is still the much-loved family home of his descendants today. Explore the striking display of Eltonware pottery and a fascinating collection of Nailsea glass. Clevedon Court is one of the oldest manor houses in England dating from the 14th century. It was built by Sir John de Clevedon incorporating parts of a 13th century tower and great hall. This once fortified manor house has now been the home of the Elton Family since 1709. The Elton’s played a large part in the development of Clevedon from a small farming community to a select Victorian resort. Through Sir Charles Elton, the poets Tennyson and Thackeray came to know Clevedon, and his grandson, Sir Edmund, was the maker and designer of Elton Ware pottery. Clevedon Court, located on Tickenham Road, displays the Elton Ware pottery collection and Elton Ware decorates the Clock Tower in the Triangle. Clevedon Court is now owned by the National Trust, it is open to the public on certain days of the week from Easter – end of September (Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday 2pm – 5pm).
