LOSELEY PARK IS NOW CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL MONDAY 1ST MAY 2017. PLEASE SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR FULL DETAILS ON OPENING TIMES.

Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty.

From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park is sought after for civil weddings, corporate events, and as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility. But it’s also a place to visit, to enjoy the grounds, the garden and house, and relax in one of England’s friendliest historic homes.

Tucked away from the rush of the A3 and Guildford this is a delightful, quiet, country home, built for a Tudor gentleman and his family. Timed, guided tours are excellent, as the guides describe practically everything you see, and tie them into the house's history. There are then, subject to weather and season, extensive and well kept gardens to wander... More

Tours of Loseley House are by guide only, which we do not always like - sometimes it is best to explore somewhere in one's own time and without firection - but this was a very informative one, even if the guide was challenged by thefour people on the tour already being fairly knowledgeable about the history of the family and...

A beautifully preserved grand house that Henry V11 Elizabeth 1 and Henry V111 son stayed in. We had a really good tour that was very informative. Shame the staff at the cafe weren't as good as they were shouting at each other whilst we were there which wasn't very professional. My quiche wasn't very warm and the salad looked limp... More

Timed guided tours only, would have been nice to wander around looking at whatever took our fancy, but tours, while very informative, are very structured. This makes it unsuitable for youngsters who would be bored. Having said that, I loved hearing about the history of the house. I would give the overpriced tea rooms a miss. The gardens are lovely...

This is a beautiful place, inside and out. Set on high ground in endless lawns it has a dreamy quality unmatched elsewhere in the south east. Best visited in bright sunshine. The interiors are delightful, filled with pieces collected by the family since the house was built in the 1560s, and the collection is still growing today. The guided tours... More

As previous reviewers have stated the garden is fabulous. I especially eenjoyed the vegetable patches, but wondered how they managed to keep thenslugs aways. The gardens are well laid out and on a hot day there were plenty of benches. The café is OKish - staff very pleasant - but menu very limited. Expensive for what it is (Soup @5.25)... More

I visited Loseley House for the first time last week with an Australian friend who loved it as much as I did. The inside of the house is fabulous and well worth visiting. Our guide was excellent if perhaps a little long-winded. The gardens are delightful and the gardening staff pleasant and helpful. The lady working in the shop was... More

Stopped at Loseley for tea and cake. You have to pay to go round the gardens and the house but access to the tea room is free and plenty of parking. Lovely setting but tea room needs improving. A bit diy and no cream for the cream teas!

We took the house tour for the first time, having been here many times before. The guide was absolutely marvellous, full of facts and figures and personal touches, such as an outside expert vouching for the provenance of a particular piece of period furniture when he was just a visitor.
