Situated beside the longest village green in England and within beautiful parkland, Grade I listed Frampton Court is a magnificent mixture of Baroque and Palladian architecture. Built and lived in by the Clifford family since 1733, the interiors are described in Pevsner as 'lavish.. with joinery of the highest quality'.
The furniture at Frampton Court is largely contemporary 18th century and fireplaces have exotic Bristol Delft tiles. The fine Huguenot verdure tapestry was recently cleaned and conserved and the collection of 19th century botanical watercolours, the Frampton Flora, was painted by members of the family.
At the end of the 17th century 'dutch canal' in the garden sits the fantastic 'Strawberry Hill' gothic Orangery, now a romantic holiday retreat.
Guests can now experience the splendour and the peace of this stunning house and its beautiful Orangery by staying for a night or arranging a house party at the Court or a self catering holiday at the Orangery.

A word from the owner
Later Clifford ladies, in the 19th century, painted 300 botanical watercolours recording the local wild and some garden flowers. These are known as the Frampton Flora and many of these paintings now hang on the walls at Frampton Court.
The Clifford family's ancestor 'Fair Rosamund', mistress of Henry 11, was said to have been born in Frampton in the 12th century and the family have long searched for the tunnel said to connect Frampton Court with her birthplace Frampton Manor across the village green.
The Park at Frampton Court is a Grade II* listed park in the style of 'Capability Brown' and offers a magical and serene location for your wedding.
As well as your beautiful marquee, by the lake, Frampton Court itself is part of the wedding package. It will not only give you the accommodation of five, beautifully appointed double bedrooms that are light and elegantly furnished, but also the use of its principal reception rooms: the panelled Hall (with bespoke “Mouseman” furniture), the Drawing Room, Dining Room and Morning Room.
Our House Manager looks after you, with plenty of time for 'set up' and perhaps, as an extra, a family dinner for up to 20 in the magnificent panelled dining room the night before the wedding. We are also able to supply delicious breakfasts from our own produce.
The beautiful Orangery in the garden at Frampton Court is also available on a self catering basis. With four lovely bedrooms it is a unique 'garden' house, very comfortable and much loved by visitors and guests. The Orangery provides fantastic opportunities for romantic photographs and for the bride and her family or friends to stay and make final preparations for the big day.
St Mary's church, which is close by, seats over 200 people. Although we cannot accommodate wedding guests in Frampton Court itself, the terrace is a terrific place for drinks after the wedding ceremony and before the wedding breakfast, giving the bride and groom an opportunity to 'arrive' up the front steps, through the house and onto the terrace before mingling with guests and walking across the 'lawns' of the Park to the marquee and lake.
