Robert and Charlotte Brackenbury
In 1287 when Henry Pierrepont married Annora de Manvers she was the sixth generation of her family to live here which possibly takes us back to around 1100 and there has been a continuity of ownership with links back to that time ever since. The Pierrepont name died out at the end of the 18th Century and with ownership going through the female line the surnames changed. Over five centuries the house has evolved in to what it is today. Nestling on the edge of West Bridgford in open countryside yet only five minutes from the cricket ground at Trent Bridge. The house was at the centre of a huge estate that stretched from the A46 to Sneinton in Nottingham. The hamlet of Holme Pierrepont has a very rural feel dating back to the days of a large agricultural estate. Rather unique considering its position next to the City of Nottingham.
The estate was sold in 1941 due to death duties and possibly the family mismanaging their money in the Victorian era! The house was withdrawn from sale along with its thirty acres of Park and Gardens. At that time no one wanted the burden of taking on such a building. It was then lived in by Sybil Argles, daughter of the 4th Earl Manvers who died with no heirs in 1967. Two years later Robin and Elizabeth Brackenbury bought the house to save it from leaving the family. The only time in its history that the house has been sold. Elizabeth Brackenbury is the Great Granddaughter of the 3rd Earl Manvers and her descendants continue to live here carrying on the work of both keeping this a family home, running it as a business with events, opening it to the public and restoring the building which is in continuous need of repair. This Grade I listed building, its contents and surroundings are enjoyed by thousands each year. More can be discovered in the different areas of this website. We also have a website for wakes.
