Overview

Stanstead Bury is an intriguing house of Tudor origin. Originally a monastic property, it has been occupied for the majority of this period since the dissolution by three families: the Baeshes, Fieldes and Trowers.

They have all left their mark and the house is now an unusual mix of architectural styles. The earliest visible part is a half-timbered Newel staircase and the most recent addition was built in 1963. It has a fine William and Mary front. It is very definitely a family house – the inside is filled with Trower possessions accumulated over the last 150 years. C16 ice house and St James’ Church, which has a particularly interesting C18 interior and is Grade I listed. Group visits can also include a tour of the Farm where there are a further four listed buildings by request.

Home-raised beef and home-grown vegetables for sale.

The house is between Roydon, Essex, and Stanstead Abbotts, Hertfordshire. Please follow the directions below as it is not easy to find.

From the north: take the A10  south from Hertford, come off at the Ware/Harlow turning, go through Stanstead Abbotts on the B181 going to Roydon, go up the steep hill, over the A414 and our drive is immediately on the left beside St James' Church. It says SLOW clearly on the road, if you go too fast you will miss the turning and end up at Roydon Station. From the South: go north on the A10 at the roundabout  marked Ware (South)/Chelmsford. Take this exit and follow signs through Stanstead Abbotts then continue as above.
