Dorney Court is one of England’s most uniquely beautiful Tudor Manor Houses set amidst acres of mature parkland and encircled by well-tended yew hedges. The remarkable and characterful House is Grade 1 listed and designated as being of outstanding architectural and historical interest.
Visitors will find that the House and Grounds have an easy charm and a warmth of welcome that reflect continuing family use and the passion and love of everyone involved with the Estate.
It may seem that little has changed over the years since the foundation stone was laid but there have been significant developments to the building itself as well as some notable and idiosyncratic intrusions onto the pages of England’s history including the cultivation of the first pineapple to be grown on these shores.
The history of Dorney Court is written in the paintings and family portraits that hang on its walls and through the miscellaneous collections of sculptures and tapestries that enliven the rooms.
