Attractive property with nice staff. Particularly enjoyed the basement that had exhibits about map making during the war. The gentleman in the basement was very knowledable and had a keen interest in aircraft and war maps. Learned a lot from him! The surroundings are pretty as are the gardens. The Disraeli talk was interesting and the artificats in the house... More

We had visited once before, living only 5 miles away, but were interested in seeing the manor decorated in Victorian Christmas style. Luckily we chose a sunny morning as some rooms of the manor can be quite dark, and so saw it in all its Victorian glory. A very interesting, historical place, and to cap it all they now have...

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.
