Stonor Park
 

Welcome to Stonor - one of England’s oldest manor houses, situated in one of the most beautiful settings, owned by the same family of the same faith for 850 years.

The House

Built from c.1190 and constructed over centuries, the house is of considerable architectural interest and contains a remarkable collection of Old Master Paintings, European sculptures, stained glass and contemporary ceramics from Japan, Korea and Europe.

The Chapel

The medieval Catholic Chapel is built on the site of pagan place of worship and dates from the late 13th or early 14th Century. The Chapel was used throughout the years of Catholic repression and continues to be used regularly to this day. Stonor gave sanctuary to St. Edmund Campion in 1581, and an exhibition features his life and work.

The Walled Garden

The garden rises up behind the ancient house and is divided between the original pleasure garden and the old kitchen garden. The garden cleverly combines formal design with informal planting. In spring, daffodils, narcissi, iris and tulips abound. During the summer you will see old fashioned roses, peonies and lavender in flower. Climbing the terrace there is a long mixed border ending with a Japanese garden house, built by the 5th Lord Camoys after his visit to Kyoto in 1906.

The Park

One of the finest views of the house can be found from the footpath that runs through the park. From here you can see over the house to the gardens beyond. Watch the Red Kites soar and swirl above and look out for the herd of Fallow Deer.

The House, Chapel, Garden, Old Hall Tea Room & Gift Shop are open from April to the end of September. The Park is open by way of a public footpath throughout the year.
