Overview

Sezincote is a Mughal Indian palace set in the Cotswold Hills, created by the nabob Charles Cockerell in 1805.

The house is surmounted by a copper dome and minarets, and set in a picturesque water garden with seven pools, waterfalls, a grotto and a temple to Surya, the Hindu Sun God. A curving Orangery frames the Persian Garden of Paradise.

Samuel Pepys Cockerell, younger brother of the owner, was the architect, with the artist Thomas Daniell advising on classical Indian architecture. Repton consulted on landscaping the grounds.

A word from the owner

Sezincote is a family home, full of dogs, cats and children. We hope you enjoy visiting our special house, thought to be the only mogul building surviving in Western Europe.

Things to See

Weddings

There are few houses as romantic and theatrical as Sezincote to host your wedding in, an Indianised fantasy of cotswold stone and copper domes.

With only 6 weddings available yearly each one is unique and tailored to the couple.

The curved orangery filled with flowers and plants, with doors open on to the persian garden takes up to 240 guests, for civil ceremonies or religious blessings.

The gardens and temples are a beautiful setting for perfect photos of the day. The house is lit up to provide an incredible backdrop to the clear marquees for dinner and dancing.
