Historic home of Lord and Lady Camoys and the Stonor family for over 800 years. The house is surrounded by a wooded deer park in a valley in the Chiltern Hills. With its origins in the 12th century the house has architectural features of medieval Tudor and Georgian periods now with a warm red brick facade. The ancient family Catholic chapel is situated alongside near the site of a pre-historic stone circle. To the rear of the house a hillside walled garden affords commanding views of the deer park. Inside on display are many items of rare furniture, sculptures, bronzes, paintings and family portraits from Britain, Europe and the USA. The family's Catholic roots are evident and an exhibition within the house features the life and work of St Edmund Campion.
