I described the kind of wedding venue we were looking for to Absolute Taste who suggested Dorney Court. We wanted to have food that was simple, tasty and beautiful for our big day and decided on the caterer before we even picked our venue, It was perfect and ended up being the only place we looked at. We were married... More

We hosted our company’s 40th anniversary at Dorney Court and the setting was excellent. Our company invited a wide range of visitors from around the world and they were all very impressed with this beautiful historic house. Our celebrations followed with a sit down meal in the Great Barn attached to Dorney Court. The service was excellent and the staff... More

Dorney Court, a beautiful beautiful venue for a wedding! However by booking Dorney Court for your wedding you have to endure the 'planners', Absolute Taste. Without being too unkind all I can say is if I were to do it all again I would book elsewhere.

Check the website before you go as this is a family home and only open at certain times of the year in the afternoons. The house is made more interesting by the owner taking you around and reciting the history of the house and the family. Entry is only by a guided tour which lasts just over an hour. A... More

We have been meaning to visit Dorney Court for ages and finally got the opportunity at the end of their open month of August (check out their website for full details/ opening times). A lovely Lady gave us a wonderful tour of the house, very entertaining and full of facts and if you were a Local, great insight into a... More

What a beautiful house and gardens this is and still lived in by the Palmer family. The House is only open to the public in August but you can book outside this time if going as a larger group. The house is stooped in History and it is so nice to be able to be so close to all the... More

Having walked 3 miles through beautiful countryside, my teenage daughter and I approached Dorney court . We were welcomed by James Palmer, Lord of the Manor ,and a small team of enthusiastic helpers. The house felt inviting and loved there was a beautiful smell of woodsmoke and the many interesting objects fed our curiosity as well as the sight of... More

An amazing house. Lived in by the same family for 500 years, it is full of family portraits and beautiful furniture. The guided tour was very interesting and led by an enthusiastic and informative guide. We were given plenty of time to look round each room. The house is only open in August and on the May bank holidays but... More

We had been wanting to visit Dorney Court for a long time but never seemed to be around the area at the right time. We had a excellent tour guide who told us the history up to modern day, as it is a family home, and pointed out some of the more interesting pictures and furniture. The twelve century church...

Take a step back into Tudor times and visit this historic gem in the ambling Buckhamshire countryside. Open only during select times of the year (everyday during the month of August and on May Bank Holiday Mondays and the preceding Sundays, as it is still being actively lived) it is definitely worth planning a trip to explore this 550+ year-old...
