“More to see than just the manor”
Review of Hughenden Manor

Hughenden Manor
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My husband and I visited this attraction on our National Trust membership as we are interested in WWII places and exhibits. The WWII tour given by a volunteer guide was short and sweet but very informative about how Hughenden was used during the war. Also worth a look are the WWII rooms in the manor itself as there is lots of information in these rooms.

The house itself is impressive if you are into that sort of thing. As we're not, I can't really comment on this aspect of the experience. The volunteers seem helpful and cheerful though, which makes the day even more pleasant.

There is a walled garden which, due to the weather, we did not unfortunately get to see. Maybe next time!

There is a cafe, toilet facilities and gift shop selling lots of National Trust gifts and produce.

A very, very good place! There is an ice house with creaky steps and inthe basement is an air raid shelter. There is a make do and mend experience downstairs! Outside are many fields and lots of trees! You can also break codes! The volunteers enjoy being there a lot. A great day for everyone! We especially enjoyed the great walled garden! We couldn't of asked for more sunny weather either! the highlight of my day was when I was in the air raid shelter!

There are several talks during the day and the basement showing what went on here during WW2 was very interesting. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and keen to answer questions as well.
The formal garden looked pretty from the window, it was too wet to venture out during out latest visit though.
There is also a walled garden which is much more established now.
If the weather is dry and you have 1-2 hours to spare, I would recommend doing one of the estate walks.

It was practically empty. The gardens were laid out in the style of Mary Ann, Disraeli's wife, a keen gardener. It's a nice enough house, but isn't furnished like a home, so you get little idea of what it was like when the Disraelis lived there.
