With our glorious 65 acres of manicured gardens, we are delighted to once again open our grounds this year with an informative 1.5 hour tour given by Head Gardener, Dan Lawrence and his team.

You will discover the numerous unique plantings, the Italian garden, rare c1900 Pulham Stone monuments and the remains of an Iron Age Hillfort know as Danesfield Camp. This will be followed by a brief talk about the house as RAF Medmenham from 1941-1946, by resident historian, Peter Faarup.
