Nestled in the heart of the Chiltern Hills this Grade I listed country house estate offers the idyllic setting for weddings and events.

With stunning interiors and gardens, there are also plenty of opportunities for filming and capturing spectacular photographs in over 350 acres of privately owned parkland and beech woods with far reaching views across the Misbourne Valley.

The private and exclusive atmosphere of Hampden House offers the perfect location for a civil ceremony amongst family and friends. For a Church wedding, the beautiful 13th-century Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene is conveniently located along the Hampden House drive.

The beautifully renovated Dining Room with chandeliers, ornate mirrors and carved fireplaces offers the perfect backdrop for a wedding breakfast overlooking the gardens.

Hosting only one wedding a week, we believe in true exclusivity for our clients and are often described as Buckinghamshire’s hidden gem.
