Well Hall Pleasaunce

Well Hall Pleasaunce

Historic and picturesque haven in Eltham.

Location: Well Hall Road, Eltham, SE9 6SZ

Description: The Well Hall Pleasaunce's history dates back to the 13th century - a haven of formal gardens, ponds and woodland.

It contained a manor house on Moat Island at the time of Henry VIII (bought and demolished in 1733) and more recently was the home of Railway Children author Edith Nesbit who lived there from 1899 to 1922.

The 16th century Tudor Barn (plaque says 1568, although this is a replacement) has been renovated and is now open as a first rate venue for functions, an evening restaurant, traditional Sunday roasts and day-time heritage cafe.
