Details

Come to Dovery Manor Museum: Locally based collection of artefacts, displays, books, photographs and pictures, all housed in an Historic building with a small physic garden, with notes on their medicinal and culinary uses.

The Manor Today: The Entrance, is a Victorian addition and was for some years the caretaker's cottage. It contains a fine collection of photos of the infamous Porlock Hill and a map of historical sites.

The Great Hall contains paintings and artefacts related to the area and information about the poets and painters who visited, lived and worked in Porlock.

On the steep and twisting staircase there are painted figures in the costume of the 1500s.

In the Upper Room there is a natural history cabinet, household, school and trade artefacts. Just off the room is the 'garderobe', an early lavatory.

The next room is the Manor's Solar and is used for special exhibitions, talks, plays and musical events.
