Lyveden Manor

Thomas Tresham planned ‘Lyveden House’ to be the starting place for Elizabethan visitors to experience his extensive pleasure grounds, including a large moated garden, and Lyveden New Bield, his garden lodge.

The house is grade one listed and was owned by the Catholic Tresham family until 1649 when it was sequestered during the Civil War. In 1660 Charles II granted Lyveden to the Earl of Sandwich and from then the house passed through various family members.

The National Trust was successful in acquiring Lyveden House and 27 acres of ground including the lower terraces to Tresham’s garden in 2013. Presently not open to the public there are plans to restore the historic grounds, giving visitors the opportunity to fully experience the Elizabethan garden as Tresham once envisaged.
