History

This stunning mansion was built in 1912 as a private residence. The grandeur and prosperity of the Edwardian era is reflected in the Neoclassical architecture of the house, plus its 17 acres of beautifully manicured gardens. It served as headquarters for the British Transport College and a conference and training centre, but the principal focus is now on hosting marvellous weddings.
