Did you know?

Dorneywood is traditionally the country residence of a senior member of the Government, usually a Secretary of State or Minister of the Crown. It was given to us by Lord Courtauld-Thomson and it is administered by the Dorneywood Trust.

Useful information

Entry is free for National Trust members, charges apply to other visitors. Entrance to the house from 19 July to 31 July is limited so booking is essential. To book a place, please email the team, with the afternoon you would like and they will confirm with you.
