The Organisation


Stonor Park is an historic, privately owned stately home and garden open to the public located north of Henley-on-Thames in South Oxfordshire. Stonor has been the residence of the Stonor Family for over 850 years making it one of the oldest family homes still lived in today. The earliest parts of the house date from the 12th Century.

The house contains a unique collection of family treasures collected over the centuries, including family portraits, old masters, furniture and sculptures as well as one of the oldest family archives in Great Britain.

In addition to opening the house to the public, Stonor has recently extended its play area into the mysterious world of Tumblestone Hollow, and hosts a wide range of events including Supercar Sunday, Gifford Circus, open air summer concerts, Antique and Vintage Car Boot Fair series, The Henley Country Craft Show, The Christmas Craft Fair and Christmas at Stonor.

Stonor continues to invest in its future so that it flourishes for another 850 years.
