Garsington Manor, near Oxford, is a country house, dating from the 17th century. Its notoriety derives principally from its owner in the early 20th century, the legendary Ottoline Morrell and her wealthy husband, a socialite who moved into the house in 1915 and who welcomed many of their friends known as the “Bloomsbury Group”, an array of artists, writers and intellectuals, DH Lawrence, TS Eliot, EM Foster, Edward Sackville-West, Virginia Woolf and Siegfried Sassoon to the house during the course of World War i, where it became a haven for conscientious objectors. The Morrells restored the house and created the Italian Gardens until financial problems forced its sale in 1928.
