Halsway Manor is a creative organisation that provides courses, events and activities for everyone interested in traditional folk music, dance and song, storytelling, folklore and arts and crafts. Located in the Quantock Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - in South West England, Halsway Manor has a fascinating history that goes back over 600 years. Set in 6 acres of grounds, the Manor has a warm friendly atmosphere, good food, a bar, a range of overnight accommodation and camping in the grounds. The Kennedy Grant Library contains thousands of books and recordings of folklore, customs, traditional folk music, dance and song - an excellent resource for research and study.
