Kelmscott Manor was the country home of the writer, designer, and socialist William Morris from 1871 until his death in 1896. Today it is owned by the Society of Antiquaries of London.

Morris drew great inspiration from the unspoilt authenticity of the house’s architecture and craftsmanship, and its organic relationship with its setting, especially its garden. The Manor is featured in Morris’ work News from Nowhere. It also appears in the background of Water Willow, a portrait of his wife, Jane Morris, painted by Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1871.
