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

A wonderful hidden gem in Bucks (although some places say Berks). An old house that has some serious history behind it and new history being made as the family still live there after around 3oo years! Very knowledgeable guide and some amazing artefacts. it's great to be able to touch everything (no hands off! policy here) and really get a... More

Tucked away in a stunning tiny village just outside Eton, Dorney Court is a beautiful private home only open at selected times. Home to the Palmer family for many generations it also has a lovely GArden centre that has a brilliant cafe. Perfect for anytime of the day. Families, cyclist, anyone can be found here. There is even a grassed... More

Dorney Court is a very interesting 15th century house. Where else will you have your entrance money taken by the Lord of the Manor ! Opening times are limited, but that just makes it a little bit more special. The tours of the house are conducted by very knowledgeable local people, and there are a lot of rooms open to... More
