Ablington Manor

  • Built / Designed For: John Coxwell

    House & Family History: Ablington Manor was built for John Coxwell in 1590. The rear wings were added in the early 17th century and the cupola in the 18th century. J. Arthur Gibbs, whose 1898 book "A Cotswold Village" helped make the Cotswolds a popular destination, made Ablington Manor his home. In the early 20th century the Manor was a hotel; it is today a private residence.
