you travel up or down the A6, it is probable that you will have noted the
imposing façade of The Manor House in Slyne-with-Hest. It is difficult to shy
away from The Manor’s exposed stonework, consisting of grey squared boulders
and cobbles. If you look more closely, you will see a panel above the front
door of the house with the inscription, ‘CGM 1681’. This includes the likely
date of the house’s construction and the initials refer to its original owners:
Cornelius and Mary Greene.
something you might not realise from the The Manor’s commanding exterior, is
that there lies a small tea room to the rear of the main house. The Manor’s
outbuildings have been sympathetically restored, creating an inviting space for
the public to enjoy.
The welcoming environment of the tea room
hits you as soon as you enter the old, characteristic building. Throughout the winter, the
focal point of the tea room is an Esse woodburning stove framed by a plain
sandstone surround. The mullioned

possibly foreshadowing the mouth-watering aroma of sizzling bacon during the
tea room’s opening hours.

family and the area was used for milk processing in the late twentieth century.
Serendipitously, the commercial milk refrigerator at the Hoggarth’s farm is now
where many a milk-based Atkinsons coffee is crafted.
outside of the tea room, is a quaint courtyard. The tea room’s pentice roof
covers two sides of the cobbled courtyard, providing a sheltered area for dog
walkers to sit and contemplate the distinctive architecture of The Manor House.
In the summer months, the courtyard is adorned with brightly coloured flowers
