Dorney Court is one of England’s loveliest houses. Renowned for its architectural importance and historical significance, there is much to inspire curiosity.
Little changed in 600 years, bar the inhabitants, Dorney Court has a rare and enchanting character. The Estate has been the home of the Palmer family for nearly half a Millenium, passing from father to son through the generations. It is a Grade 1 listed building, further designated as being of outstanding architectural and historical interest. Dorney Court has always been the manor house of Dorney village which was first recorded in the Domesday Book.
The archaeological record indicates that Dorney, with its prized location neighbouring the River Thames and surrounded by fertile farmland, has long been settled. Traces of pre-historic occupation have been uncovered in the peat suggesting that river borne trade as much as agriculture played dominant roles in the development of the site.
The remarkable and characterful House is Grade 1 listed and designated as being of outstanding architectural and historical interest.
COACH HOUSE BARN
The Coach House Barn is a stunning reinterpretation of Dorney Court’s Victorian brewery and the building which formerly housed the carriages and coaches of the Palmer Family. Looking out over its own private landscaped courtyard the Coach House Barn is a magical addition to the Estate.
Dorney Court lies to the west of London in a rural pocket of countryside flanked by the River Thames and, to the north, guarded from the M4 by farmland and the Jubilee River. The village of Dorney is the most southerly in Buckinghamshire with Dorney Common marking the county border. The picturesque towns of Maidenhead, Windsor and Eton are all within easy reach while Reading and High Wycombe are no more than a short drive away.
