This was our second visit to Hughenden Manor - and it remains my absolute favourite (with Scotney Castle a close second)! The whole place had so much Christmas atmosphere with mulled cider and chestnuts on offer, and marshmallows for children to toast over the open fire - all completely free! The staff are all knowledgeable, friendly and only to happy... More

We visited Hughenden for a second time today and the Christmas theme was a bonus. After an excellent light lunch - the homemade soup was superb, filling and good value for money we got to the house itself just as an introductory talk was to take place. Even though she said she had only recently started giving the talk, Jenny... More

Hughenden is a great few hours out to explore the war times and it's map rooms along with the life of one of our finest Prime Ministers and his fasinating life with his wife not go mention the friendship he had with Queen Victoria. It reminded me of entering my grandmothers house with some of the articles and items on... More

With two friends, my wife and I visited Hughenden Manor today and were delighted to find it very tastefully decorated for a Victorian Christmas. We regard this as a family home in which we would have been more than happy to live, rather than a massive stately pile. The very best part of the visit was the Introductory talk at... More

Very interesting house dating back to the 19th Century. Many artifacts from the Disraeli era. Extensive gardens. Lovely trees. Past base of RAF Intelligence in WW2. Original rooms of RAF in the basement. Near Hughendon Park. Interesting Church near the entrance. Well stocked catering in the courtyard. Superb National Trust Shop.

The staff were all very knowledgeable about Disraeli. The exhibition in the basement about the wartime map-makers housed in Hughenden was very interesting.

Interesting guide who explained history of Disraeli and this house. Good to see lots of original furniture, pictures, etc. also hand written notes by Queen Victoria. House seemed quite dark in most rooms. Unable to explore grounds outside as very wet day. Basement better lit with history of map making. House closed 3.30pm as opening hours are shorter in winter...

We arrived at Hughenden at lunch time on a recent drab autumn Sunday to find the car park full. Fortunately, after driving around once, one car was leaving so we were able to take their place. We were able to join a free tour of the World War II Exhibition with a very knowledgeable and humorous guide and learned a... More

Well worth a visit if you are into your history! Interesting World War 2 display downstairs and upstairs rooms as they would have been when Disraeli was there. I certainly know more about him now than I did before I went. volunteers full of knowledge.

We picked a wet day but enjoyed our visit, highlight for me was the RAF exhibition in the cellar, not to be missed. The grounds look good but we will have to pick a better day to enjoy them. The church in the grounds is also worth a visit.
