Welcome to Dorney

  • Widely regarded as one of England’s finest Tudor Manor Houses, where successive generations of our family are privileged to have lived for nearly 500 years.  Dorney Court stands in landscaped gardens and overlooks mature parkland and ancient yew hedges while flocks of sheep graze the surrounding meadows.

    The church of St. James the Less, which dates back to the Norman Conquest, towers next to the house and our beautiful newly restored coach house barn. Windsor Castle floats in the distance and Dorney Lake lies a short walk away.

    Dorney is a rural oasis tucked away next to the Thames, a corner of quintessential England, yet the village is just a stone’s throw from Central London.  Whether you are visiting Dorney Court for a wedding, a tour or a private event we hope that, like us, you will be enchanted by the magic and the history of the house and grounds.
