  • Fantastic National Trust managed location. Hughenden Manor house is very interesting and provides good cultural and historical references and objects to understand the multiple talents of the politician, international statesman, orator and author, Benjamin Disraeli. Some sympathetic room dressings give the house a historical warmth, without being over powering ... just enough to allow for a brief amount of idling over vicarious thoughts. The top floor is more practical, with casual seating and glass cases with swords, ink wells, fine robes and other artefacts, together with the "backing story" card : just enough crucial information, with which you can impress your friends at a dinner party, as if the anecdote was obtained through hard personal academic study! One final point : make a note to look UP, as the ceilings in this place are beautiful. Enjoy.
  • Great place. Well kept. Easy to find your way around. Good parking availability during the weekend & Friendly staff. The gardens are very nice for taking a few pictures... But if you are planning to visit the monument make sure the weather is good. During the winter, even if it's not raining, the access path is quite muddy and you need hiking gear!
  • One of the best small national trust sites i have visited. Nice and compact - with plenty for children to do in veg garden. Adventure walk by car park a good distraction for kids.
  • Recently discovered this National Trust treasure and was impressed by the gardens and the property itself. Will be returning in summer to try the restaurant in the stable yard.
  • Took my youngest 3 to meet Father Christmas, all the staff were lovely and it is a gorgeous place to visit. Highly recommend only warning is the drive up to park is very steep! And parking spaces quite tight (if you have a big car like us not the easiest place to manouvre).
