Grey's Court, Henley-on-Thames

From a picturesque 16th-century mansion to a 20th century intimate family home. The house exudes a welcoming atmosphere with a well-stocked kitchen and homely living rooms. The series of walled gardens are a colourful patchwork of interest set amid medieval ruins. The organic Kitchen Garden provides produce throughout the open season not only for the Tearoom but for visitors too.

Other buildings from earlier eras include the Great Tower from the 12th century and a rare Tudor donkey wheel, in use until the early 20th century.

  • NT members. Drove a considerable distance to visit. Arrived at 12:30 on a Sunday and cones were being placed alongside the busy main road as the car park was full. Nowhere to stop so no choice but to ...  more »
  • The house is interesting but in my opinion not one of the National Trust's outstanding properties. The volunteers are very good and we found all of them very informative. The property does not open un...  more »

  • Beautiful setting, very calm and peaceful. The house makes you want to move in straight away and the man playing the grand piano in the drawing room was a magical extra. Bit early to see the gardens at their best but will go again soon when the wisteria is out. Wonderful parkland and bluebell wood to die for. Good cafe too.
  • I go to a lot of National Trust sites and they never disappoint. This site is a bit smaller than others so it's perfect for a morning or an afternoon. There's lots of space for kids to run around outside as well as a fun park for them the gardens are beautiful in spring and summer and the staff are always friendly too. The buildings are interesting and the surroundings are vibrant. Well worth a visit on your own or with the family
  • Relatively small house by NT standards but plenty to see. Last visit was in February and walks round the estate were muddy in places. Informative volunteers and tour guide excellent. Off season, the house access is by guided tour am and free flow in the afternoon. I usually try to book on a tour as a personal preference but you often can visit more rooms on your own. Parking improved from last visit in mid 2017.
  • Lovely smaller National Trust property. The volunteers were really knowledgeable and lovely! This house is quite unique because all of the objects in the house are actually from the family that owned the property. Most NT places have to bring furniture, books, and other things in. Apparently, the older members still come to visit from time to time. It gives the property an authentic feel. I hoped to be able to go up in the castle next to the house, but it's roped off :( Probably for the best, but still. The gardens look like they'll be nice in the summer, so will have to come back then.
  • We used this as a stop over on way to the Cotswolds and enjoyed a nice light lunch then wandered around the different gardens. The house was very interesting too. Shame we did not have more than 2 hrs to spare but will endeavour to visit again. Red kites glided gracefully around the area.
