The cafe is brilliant with lots of good food and cakes. The garden centre is a lovely place to wander and buy something for the garden, whether you thought you needed it or not! Now there is a deli section so the choice is even greater.

We visited that place last may with my daughter who was studying tudor at school. It is the place to go as the house hasn't changed and you really feel like you are back in time few hundreds years ago. Unfortunately pictures were not authorised inside. We have been told that the successor 's son is now living there with... More

It is a fabulous building and well worth visiting. Check the website when it will be open this year. Also check out the Dorney Court Kitchen Garden next door for an outstanding experience in food and the garden centre itself.

This is not your big stately affair, rather a family home that just happens to be over 450 years old and rich in history therefore. An hours guided tour goes by quickly ; lots to see, smell, 'feel' as the story of the house unfolds. It's spine chillingly intriguing in parts and your thoughts often turn to 'how on earth... More

A n informative guided tour bought to life this fascinating house.Steeped in stories going back to Charles the second,this house still being lived in has been well kept and oozes character.Dissappointly the church was closed for refurbishment and the gardens aren't all that interesting but go just for the house.

Today we spent at Dorney Court. Neither Mike or I had been here before although we have visited many other houses in the area. Arriving at lunchtime, we first had a very tasty snack at the Kitchen Garden Café. After that we had a tour by Robin and learned about how the house had evolved over the many years it... More

Extremely impressed with the quality of the guide who showed us round - not only knowledgeable about the house's history, but also able to put it in a broader historic context. Also refreshing to get an honest view of how a House such as this developed over centuries. Beautiful gardens, a cafe (separate business) next door... And the first place... More

Just returned from a weekend staying in the area for my friends wedding at Dorney Court. What a beautiful place and gorgeous setting. Would love to visit again to see more of the house.

Despite living in Windsor we had never visited Dorney Court until last week. We have been missing a lovely, very ancient house. The most amazing fact, out of many, is that the house has been in the same family for 13 generations and is still privately owned by the same family. It is crammed full of historical relics, but is... More

Very old unspoilt house, still in family ownership. Extremely knowledgeable guide told us about the house, contents, lives and relationships of the owners for 100's of years. Interesting to hear about the filming that has taken place requiring removal of all the pictures and the ongoing cataloging of the rare textiles. A huge responsibility for each succeeding generation! Make sure... More
