THE HISTORY OF NEWLANDS MANOR
Newlands Manor is steeped in history and in the latter part of the nineteenth century entertained Kaiser Wilhelm, King Edward VII, Lily Langtry and Randolph Churchill. The main house was a fine country estate and after WWII was divided into individual dwellings, each with their own private garden and owning a share of the 32 acres that surround the house for the exclusive use of the residents. The cottage was formerly The Gamekeepers Larder which when owned by Col. William Cornwallis-West in the 1860s became the place for house and shooting parties.
