Ashby Folville Manor is a late 19th-century house in Neo-Tudor style in the village of Ashby Folville, Leicestershire. The house was substantially rebuilt in 1891-1893 by the architect John Ely of Manchester after a fire.[1]

A camp for displaced people from Poland was established in a former US Army base in the grounds after World War II. The resettlement camp was occupied from 1948 until 1965.[2]

It is now the home of Rosemary Conley.[3]
