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

Fusty old house frequented by geriatric national trust enthusiasts. Spent most of the morning sitting on the lawn watching the grass grow. That's 10 quid and and 2 hours of my life I'm never getting back.

Wonderful country house & insight into Victorian Britain...learning about the house & Disraeli was fascinating. There are also beautiful country walks in woodlands/up hills etc that all contribute to a glorious day in the English countryside - highly recommended!

A good place to spend a sunny day as we did. Plenty to see in the house, ice house and gardens. Staff are informative and friendly. Would fully recommend.

The historic home of Disraeli covers off a great history of the man and his family. Rooms contain many interesting artefacts. Plus the basement has been recreated as the RAF HQ for planning bombing raids during WWII. Beautiful grounds as well.

Wanted something to do on a summer Sunday and found Hughenden Manor was voted tops on Trip Advisor, so decided to give this venue a try. Yes, it is not only an interesting place, it is well laid out, and has plenty of interest to discover. The house itself seems to be well cared for by the National Trust, so... More

We did not visit on the best day - it was cloudy with occasional rain. This meant that the gardens were not at their best. The house is interesting with insights into the personal and the public life of a key individual in British history. Printed guides are brief but useful and the volunteer room guides helpful and informative. The... More

A brilliant insight into the Victorian political scene - and shows how different things were to today. Make sure you do the Disraeli talk if nothing else - I learnt more in 25 minutes than in a whole History GCSE from the well informed guide. The house is a non-typical NT property having been owned by a politician rather than... More

From Disraeli's private life to his relationship with Queen Victoria and WW2 secret map making for the RAF - FANTASTIC. We visited the manor expecting a normal interesting National Trust property but hoe wrong we were. It is one of the most interesting and surprising ways to spend a day out. The house guides are very helpful and knowledgeable, the... More
