I visited with a friend who lives locally and we found the reception staff very welcoming and friendly. The house itself is amazing and gives a great picture of how life was lived over 500 years ago. So much of the original has been preserved...More

We really enjoyed our visit yesterday to this quirky house, despite the rain. We were in a small group shown around by Ross? He was very informative and amusing, we weren't troubled by the "lockless" lady. We were a group of 3-2 members of HHA...More

We are so happy you enjoyed your visit despite the rain. 30 years ago when we first opened you would have had to slalom around the buckets and pans that were deployed on stormy days given the state of the roof. Happily things are in...More

Thank you very much for such kind words. I wonder whether you were told about the famous egg fights of the 1970s which left the portraits in the Great Hall nicely battered? As for the other "raucous behaviour that has occurred ... over the centuries",...More

My boyfriends family were getting married here. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Gravel pathway up to the entrance and we were then directed round the back of the country house. The reception area was quite large and decorated beautifully. The outdoor space around the back...More

Thank you for such warm and generous feedback. The house is certainly not sanitised and if that occasionally means children or dogs appearing unannounced then we ask those visiting to bear with us. It really is a great pleasure sharing Dorney and all the more...More

It is wonderful that you found so much to enjoy. Thank you for the kind words. We do indeed have fairly limited opening times but that's the challenge of balancing being a family home with welcoming visitors. It is something we keep under review. James...More

A family home in the village of Dorney which has restricted opening times but well worth visiting as it has a facinating history and lovely gardens.
