Historic Chenies Manor is open to visitors and is available for wedding ceremonies, receptions, exhibitions, events, filming and guided tours.
Beautifully nestled in the natural beauty of the Chilterns on the Herts/Bucks border. The idyllic rural setting of the manor also benefits close proximity to London and London Heathrow, situated just outside of the M25. Chenies Manor House is one of the UK’s finest Tudor Mansion Houses. Steeped in history, the Grade I Listed estate is set in Buckinghamshire’s charming estate village of Chenies and overlooks the Chess Valley.
The venue’s grounds boast award winning gardens and original 13th Century features including a Medieval well, a dungeon and a reputed priest hole. Although it has never been occupied by Royalty, both Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were visitors. Chenies Manor House was bought in 1956 by Colonel and Mrs Macleod Matthews and has since remained as the Macleod Matthews family home.
