Scaplen's Court

Scaplen's Court is a Grade I listed medieval building dating back to the 1300s.

The building we see today is mainly a courtyard inn built in the 1500s and 1600s. The inn was called The George, and graffiti made by Parliamentarian soldiers who were lodging here in the 1630s can be seen carved into one of the stone fireplaces.

Adjoining Scaplen’s Court is a delightful walled garden providing an oasis of colour and tranquility. Originally designed by George Dillistone in 1930, it was restored by volunteers in 2000 as a herb and physic garden.

Scaplen's Court is now a thriving schools learning centre offering unique hands-on learning experiences. The character-filled period rooms and pretty walled garden are also available to hire exclusively, creating a fantastic setting for weddings, civil partnerships, corporate and private events.
