A family home, delightful gardens and an idyllic setting
An intimate family home and peaceful estate set in the rolling hills of the Chilterns.
This picturesque 16th-century mansion and tranquil gardens were home to the Brunner family until recent years. The house exudes a welcoming atmosphere with a well-stocked kitchen and homely living rooms. The series of walled gardens is a colourful patchwork of interest set amid medieval ruins.
Other buildings from earlier eras include the Great Tower from the 12th century and a rare Tudor donkey wheel, in use until the early 20th century.
Come and join us for Christmas. The house will be beautifully dressed in post war style using yearly illustrations done by Laurence Irving for Lady Brunner. Visit the shop to pick up some last minute Christmas gifts or pop by our new tea-room, The Cowshed, for afternoon tea.
The volunteer seamstresses have been lovingly crafting a quilt and cushion to raise funds for textile conservation in the mansion. Don't miss out on your chance to win one of these unique works of art.
