Bancroft Manor B&B, in the Heart of Historic Kennett Square, is minutes from
Longwood Gardens...yet we offer you peace and quiet at the end of the day.
Located in the National Historic District of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, Bancroft Manor Bed & Breakfast is on a quiet
street yet conveniently located fewer than four blocks from Kennett's fine dining restaurants, art galleries, one-of-a-kind
shops, the nationally ranked Kennett Area YMCA, and Nixon Park. We are just minutes away from Brandywine Valley
attractions Longwood Gardens, Brandywine Battlefield, Brandywine River Museum, Winterthur, and Hagley Museum.
Built in 1909 by J. Bancroft Swayne who founded the area's mushroom farming industry in the late 19th century, the
house is predominantly Queen Anne style with elements of the Classical Revival period. Our rooms are tastefully decorated
in period antiques and fixtures. We provide all of the conveniences you expect from a modern hotel and the comforts
and personal attention that are the hallmark of a Bed & Breakfast.
