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

After seeing the signs for Dorney Court while driving through Eton, we decided to stop and were lucky enough to find the house open. We were met in the garden by a lovely lady who gave us a private tour of this gorgeous home. It is still a residence and you can feel the love and care it has been... More

I have been here many times but only been inside the house once as it's not always opened to the public, and I visited on a school trip with my daughter. They use the house for filming a lot as it's such an old house, it's been in the same family I believe for over 450 years.

Really is a worthwhile visit. Getting a guided tour about the history of a family who has been in the house over the centuries gives a more personal insight into the occupancy. The staff were amazing and should be hugged on exit. Very knowledgeable and ever happy. The house is amazing, I haven't been in a house that looks so... More

This lovely family home is a gem hidden in Berkshire very near the new Dorey Lake Olympic site. A family home dating back to the 17th century with links to King Charles II on the wrong side of the blanket! It has been used for several films and television shows. You need to check their website for opening times. It... More

I have lived within a stones throw of Dorney Court for many, many years but never visited the house, now I wished that I had done so earlier. This family home of the Palmer family really is a little gem. The expert guide brings the whole house to live with an informed and humorous commentary. the tour takes about an... More

Dorney Court was a wasted trip. With good friends visiting the area for one day, I thought it would be fun to visit the National Trust's Ham House in Richmond, then Dorney Court near Windsor. Dutifully checking Dorney's opening hours yesterday, we set out this morning for a shortened visit to Ham that would allow us a mid-afternoon return to... More

With a group of antiques lovers from Belgium and the Netherlands, most students at Syntra Tongeren-Belgium, I have visited Dorney Court during a journey to the Thames Valley. For this visit we had arranged the 'connoisseurs tour' for groups, starting with coffee or thea and home-made cakes, followed by the guided tour and ending with a drink. All members of... More

This house is a treasure, full of family history and still retaining the feeling of a 'lived in home' The guide on our tour was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic; the tour was also unhurried, allowing the visitor to admire all the wonderful furniture, objects and paintings. The adjacent garden centre is also worth a visit, especially for the excellent tearoom... More

My wife and I and our bundle of perpetual energy that is our 5 month son, visited Dorney Court yesterday afternoon. We had a fantastic time! It is one of the finest Tudor manor houses I've yet been to and the tour guide was both knowledgeable, welcoming and engaging. It was fascinating to learn a little of the history of... More
