A place of reinvention; evolving gardens, changing art exhibitions and a country house story spanning over 300 year.

It has an intriguing story to tell, beginning with the wealthy teenager who built the mansion to its occupation by the RAF in the Second World War to the re-invention as a country-house gallery, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery. Today, the architectural grandeur of the rooms is a perfect setting for many 18th-century portraits featuring people who have influenced British history and its culture.
In the garden, the story continues with numerous sections showing Italian, Victorian and even horse-racing influences: traditional herbaceous borders contrast with sweeping lawns, formal gardens and beds, wildlife areas, and the restored working walled garden.

At the heart of this farmed estate lies Lower Brockhampton Manor House, a romantic timber-framed house dating back to the late 14th century. The house is surrounded by a moat and is entered via a charming timber-framed gatehouse, built 1530-40. There are miles of walks through the orchards, park and woodlands, featuring ancient trees, the picturesque Lawn Pool.
