There is no doubt that this historic manor looks extremely picturesque and the rooms inside are quite in keeping with the exterior. My favourite room was the last one - the dining room but the first is also very atmospheric. The house is not quite as old as it claims in so far as an 18th century façade was removed... More

Amazing 600 year old house, occupied by same family for about 500 years. Mainly dark wood, tapestries and faded wall paper, unusual Great Hall with family crests, interesting additions made over the years to accommodate the family. Due to a wedding at venue we were unable to see inside the chapel, this had not been mentioned on the website, so... More

Definitely worth a visit and will come back to view the house. We only went to the garden shop, garden centre, the gardens and the cafe. But we enjoyed it all and would highly recommend. Great choice of food in the cafe, lovely atmosphere, very clean and nicely presented.

For some years I have passed the turning to Dorney Court and finally I stopped to visit. Wish I had stopped by sooner! A lovely house that is still a home, surrounded by open feeling gardens and a genuinely old church plus a lovely converted barn. The guided tour of the house was informative and amusing; there is so much... More

An absolutely charming visit during August - the only period during which the Palmer Family kindly make their beautiful and historic home available to the general public. Arriving at about 13:30, we were asked to join a group of 20 who had just commenced their guided tour. About 6 rooms are presented by an excellent guide. A wonderful treat. A... More

This place is open to the public during the afternoon for the whole of August. Guided tour of the quirky house lasts about an hour, ours was led by a very knowledgeable young man who I think may have been one of the family. Well worth the admission price, nice tea room and small garden centre on site.

We are really thrilled that you enjoyed your visit to Dorney Court but more than anything glad to hear that you rated your Guide so highly. Like many historic houses, we rely on a fantastic group of volunteers to look after our visitors and each guide has their own distinctive style. It is fair to say that no two tours... More

Moored up nearby, cycled out and came across Dorney Court. Pushed bikes down a pebble roadway and was met by a "welcoming" committee sat outside at a table. Conversation went like this: Woman at table, "Do you want to look around the house?" Me: "Not really as we don't have the time!" Woman at table: "Well you shouldn't be on... More

Dorney court is open in the afternoons in August and we enjoyed a wonderfully entertaining tour of the house by a delightful elderly relative of the family. The house oozes history and character yet still retains a homely vibe. The tour takes about an hour. I wouldn't recommend for children and might prove difficult for people with walking difficulties as... More

On arrival we were split into three groups of 16 with our own guide. This was an ideal size as some of the rooms are small. This is certainly a unique house (grade 1) with most of the original furniture that has been collected over the years by the family who have owned the property for over 300 years. You... More

Thank you for your positive words and we can confirm that the house is pretty chilly from October - March. Fortunately, we do light the fires and turn on the rudimentary heating during the winter months when we have tours as we try not to let our visitors catch hypothermia. Group sizes of 16 are fantastic and we cap the... More
