Stonor Park has been the Stonor family’s residence for 850 years making it one of the oldest family homes still lived in today.
When you visit, you will see why. It’s beautiful. Our historic building and sweeping grounds are breathtaking. And our family collection of art and artefacts is extraordinary. It’s fascinating.
You can view the work of St. Edmund Campion, created when he was given refuge here in 1581. And outside sits our oldest resident: a perfectly preserved prehistoric stone circle.
As well as being architecturally fascinating each room contains a lifetime of experience and anecdote.
Discover art and treasures collected from across the globe and view historic maps and documents that reveal generations of service to the country. A stroll through this house is a vivid walk through history.

Stonor is closely associated with St. Edmund Campion, martyred in 1581.
He was a Londoner, and a leading Oxford academic of the day, ordained a Catholic Priest and Jesuit on the Continent who had answered the call of the Pope to volunteer to work on 'The English Mission'.
Already known to the Stonor family, he was given refuge here in 1581 to print in the greatest secrecy a pamphlet describing 'Ten Reasons' why the historical Catholic faith should be preferred over the teachings of the newly Established Church.
The rooms used to print this work can be seen, along with an exhibition describing St. Edmund Campion's life and death.
Less than an hour from London and set within a dramatic, sweeping valley in the heart of the Chilterns, Stonor Park provides an idyllic setting for a wedding.
For over 850 years the house and gardens have been host to celebrations and weddings for family and friends, making it the ideal venue for your perfect day.
One of the greatest advantages of Stonor Park as a wedding venue is the sheer choice of locations throughout the park.
Ranging from the formal lawns and gardens close to the house to The Hilltop; a wonderful, fun location which provides one of the most romantic views across the Chiltern Hills and Oxfordshire countryside.
The Hilltop is a perfect site for Woodland Weddings. We would be delighted to invite you to Stonor to see what the park can offer for your perfect day.
Stonor Park has its own beautifully intimate Roman Catholic 13th century chapel, which is perfect for up to 80 guests to witness the ceremony.
Stonor, hidden in a fold of the Chiltern Hills five miles from Henley-on-Thames, provides a stunning location with endless options for corporate events.
The home of Lord and Lady Camoys, it is a place steeped in 850 years of history. The magnificent buildings and country surroundings provide a stunning backdrop to your event be it for 50 or 5000.
It is possibly, the most beautiful setting of any house in England. The house is a stately, glamorous choice for a drinks reception for up to 100 guests or dining for up to 80 guests in either of the two medieval halls or the Long Gallery that looks out onto the gardens.
With the house and the atmospheric stone circle as a magnificent backdrop, marquees for up to 500 guests can be sited on the Front Lawn.
And the divine walled Italianate gardens behind the house offer a more intimate outside space. Perfect for smaller marquees accommodating up to 200.
