Grade II* Palladian house with strong links to Charles I who took refuge here in a priest hole from Oliver Cromwell (leaving his coat behind). Later, Charles II presented the Acton family with a fine Van Dyck portrait of his father, which still hangs in the saloon to this day. The half-mile, straight tree-lined drive gives a stunning approach that has never been used for filming.

The house was sold by the Acton family to the present owner’s grandfather in 1959 and is now a private family home, which is not normally open to the public.

Tour of the exterior, through the gardens, followed by a tour of the main downstairs rooms and two of the state bedrooms. Tea will be served in the saloon.

What a splendid visit we had yesterday to Aldenham Park. Everyone agreed that Hettie Fenwick was a delightful and informative tour guide. She and her husband continue the work done by her grandparents and parents to enhance the interior decoration and the garden surrounding the house,
yet at the same time it is a lived-in family home. I can thoroughly recommend this visit.
