Welcome to Ashley Manor, a romantic Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Our gracious Inn is ideally located in the heart of the historic district, minutes from Cape Cod Bay, and Barnstable Village and Barnstable Harbor. Our mid-Cape location is a short drive or walk to Cape Cod's beaches and attractions.

Our  Barnstable, bed and breakfast, offers two acres of park-like grounds with a spacious backyard patio, gazebo, and tennis court for our guests' enjoyment. Our six beautifully romantic guest rooms include four luxury suites and two traditional rooms. Each suite features a wood-burning fireplace, full private bath, and a separate two-person Jacuzzi tub, free WiFi and parking.

On sunny summer days you can enjoy a full gourmet breakfast on the patio overlooking the spacious gardens and tennis court.  In cooler months, enjoy your breakfast in front of a roaring fire in the formal dining room.

"One of the nicest bed and breakfasts on the Cape..."  New York Times

Ashley Manor is a historic New England bed and breakfast inn that reflects the elegance and romance of an all-but-forgotten way of life.  Beautifully restored the Manor quietly blends the amenities of your comfort expectations with the grace and dignity of an earlier time.

Originally built in 1699, Ashley Manor has seen many additions over the centuries. Evidence of its age and history can be seen in the wide-board flooring (wood usually reserved for the king during colonial times), huge open-hearth fireplaces(one with a bee-hive oven), hand-glazed wainscoting throughout the inn, and a secret passage connecting the upstairs and downstairs ---thought to be a hiding place for Tories during the Revolutionary War.

While originally part of a larger farm tract, today two acres remain to surround Ashley Manor with graceful hedges, stately old trees, and natural woods. A charming gazebo completes the aura of a former time, while a carefully sited tennis court blends gently into the surroundings. Common rooms are large and sunny in summer, cozy and warm in winter...and beautifully furnished with antiques, oriental rugs, and graceful country furniture. Here, guests are invited to relax quietly by the fire, to read a book from the Manor’s library, or to share conversation with the other guests or the innkeepers.

The six bedchambers or suites are carefully decorated and appointed to reflect the 17th century details of the inn. Each is a spacious, private refuge. All feature modern baths, all but one provide working fireplaces, and the suites have large whirlpool tubs.

Each room has its own special charm...some feature New England shuttered windows, or colorful old Nantucket speckled floors, or canopy and pencil-post beds. All include those lovely small touches that reveal the innkeepers' caring attention to detail and your comfort: free WiFi, imported bedside chocolates, the finest soaps, shampoos and lotions, and in-room coffee and tea service for the early riser. Every room has a comfortable sitting area for two, where you can enjoy that cup of tea, or perhaps a good book.

New England bed and breakfast

After a day of touring, Ashley Manor will welcome you back...for a set of tennis, to enjoy one of the many books in the library, and for complimentary cordials in the evening. Relax on the terrace or enjoy a luxurious whirlpool bath before dinner at one of the nearby fine restaurants. Surely, the early Cape Coders lived this well...

So step back in time. Discover Ashley Manor for yourself where serenity, history, and luxurious comfort come together to indulge you with simple pleasures and a sense of times past. You'll want to stay a while...and return again and again!
