Beautiful reconstruction and restoration. This is a high Victorian home that is almost built on a family scale! You feel you could live there quite comfortably! I could easily imagine writing my next novel in the boudoir! Benjamin Disraeli the former owner of the house is wonderfully represented in momentos, documents, letters and personal effects. It is very interesting indeed... More

The house is lovely and the greeting as we arrived at the house was good the lady talked us through what we would see and which way to go, the only downside was the NT lady in the top view room was so engrossed in her book I thought she was a visitor she did not acknowledge people were there...

I absolutely love this beautiful historic old home, and have visited the house and grounds many times over the years for various events. I also use the park and woodland behind as a dog walking venue and until recently was a regular user of the tea rooms. After nearly 40 years of fairly frequent visits I'm appalled by the decision...

Once the home of Benjamin Disraeli Hughenden Manor is a home in which one could imagine living unlike many country houses which, though grand, appear very uncomfortable. This site is lovely with great views over towards High Wycombe. The use of the site by the RAF during WWII to house staff creating maps used in bombing raids was a real... More

A car of 4 people and we were quoted £4 each (a total of £16) just to park! We turned round and left. Didn't even make the house so I cannot comment on that.

The house very much feels like the home of Benjamin Disraeli. It more than does justice to an incredibly talented outsider who entirely through his efforts became a Victorian colossus. Unlike some national trust properties the volunteers seemed genuinely connected to the property and it's historical owner and it was clearly apparent they are for once a happy and appreciated...

We have trust membership and really enjoy all of the events that Hughenden hold. Our nieces really enjoyed the Halloween hunt, staff are really informative and there are two tea rooms- excellent! Although Dogs aren't allowed in the house the grounds are fantastic for a dog walk.

I love my weekend walks to Hughenden Manor - especially in the summer when the weather is nice as you can sit in or outside their little cafe. The manor itself and the gardens as well are just stunning. My only small problem is that I often find that the staff is a bit unfriendly (not all though). A smile... More

First visit to Hughenden. Lovely grounds and interesting house with lots of history. Terrain difficult for those with mobility problems eased by use of buggy. Like all National Trust properties it is well cared for and there are excellent, if expensive, catering facilities. Will visit again.

We came along to see disraeli's home and wonderful gardens and were amazed to find the hidden WWII secrets being unfolded. More of this please. Do try to recapture the world of Hillside while it is still possible. Generations to come will want to learn how it was.
