The original house on this 3,000-acre estate was built for Sir Thomas Chicheley in the 1640s, rebuilt and added to over the years, and finally restored to its proper splendor today.

An absolutely wonderful place for a beautiful long walk with the dogs. Steeped in history, the grounds, manor house and farm are just magical and one feels transported back in time.

We visited here the other weekend and had a lovely time exploring the gardens. The Wall Garden and Home Farm were very interesting. The café served very good light and roast lunches and tea and cakes in the afternoon.

Really nice grounds, you can see lots from the house not just few rooms. I attended a walk led by a local volunteer, really worth it as we could enjoy some facts about the house’s and the grounds’ history.

Visited this October, well worth it for the variety. We enjoyed the walled gardens, farm and walk to the folly. The house is magnificent both inside and out. Great little restaurant/tea room but picnic places too. I could envisage returning and enjoying the grounds in...More
