Took a picnic and enjoyed it at the picnic tables. Fascinating history and enthusiastic knowledgable guides. Found info about D'Israeli and the secrets of WWll engaging. Need a few more adult dress up clothes. :)

The house was interesting but I have been to better, the walled garden is very pretty and we were delighted to see Red Kites circling above us, I'd never seen one let alone half a dozen. However the highlight for me was the basement, the Second World War exhibition is fascinating, from map drawing to parachute silk, my brothers shirts... More

First visited Hughenden 30 years ago and remember then that we disliked the house (far too 'Victorian') and thought it more a Disraeli shrine than a conventional historic country house. Well, time moves on and opinions change. Maybe the Victorian era is now further removed from us and we can look at its monuments more dispassionately? Or it could just... More

Definitely going to delve more into the life of Disraeli. Power hungry, womaniser, statesman, nature lover, a complex character. Beautiful house and gardens too. The WW II story of Hughenden is also fascinating. Well worth a visit

Visited on a lovely day and did the full house & grounds. The talks on Disraeli and Hughenden during the war were very interesting. Also went for the longest of the walks around the estate following the red direction arrows, which was excellent, but hard work on some of the slopes. Food in the on site restaurant was very good,...

Without the Disraeli connection and the related various artefacts and memorabilia, Hughendon would be a pretty ordinary property but the basement showing the amazing map making role it played in the Second World War was extremely well presented and made this visit stand out, The garden around the front lawn was a blaze of colour and beautifully kept although a...

The former house of Conservative prime minister Disraeli. A relatively moderately sized house for a former Victorian PM. The style of the property reflects a mock gothic style similar to that of Strawberry Hill. This reflects the style and charisma of Disraeli. The rooms were appropriately furnished for the era and some items were Disraeli's personal possessions. The room guides... More

We went on a very sunny day and the house and gardens were at their best. The staff in the house were very knowledgeable about the life and times of Disraeli and Queen Victoria. The world war two exhibition in the basement was very interesting and told the story of the secret map making that took place at the house... More

National Trust property, previously Disraeli's house. Beautifully set out by NT and a really great place to visit-a must do if in the area.

We had a very nice lunch at Hughenden Manor. Beware - on sunny weekends or holidays the car park can fill up early, as can the café. Lunch here is always good, with lots of tasty dishes made using local ingredients. The stable courtyard is sheltered and a good place to sit out on a warm day. The house is... More
