Welcome to Barnham Court

Barnham Court A medieval manor house, mentioned in historical records from 1253, appears to have stood on the site of the present Barnham Court, or in the close to the east of it. The current house was built around 1640, with associated gardens. Barnham Court is a truly remarkable Grade 1 listed period property, situated in a very private, tranquil setting with wonderful landscaped grounds and formal gardens. The house has been extensively and sympathetically renovated which have enhanced the property to 21st century comforts in a truly magical setting. Considered the best of its date in the county, the house is a red brick mansion built in the time of the Stuarts. Its pillasters, window surrounds and shaped gables are similar to Kew Palace in Surrey, Albourne Place and Ford Place. There is an orchard, garden and warren to the south-east of the house. There is also a large marl pit and further orchard. A path linking the house to the nearby church is still extant today. A small formal garden with criss-crossing paths was laid out behind the building in the 19th century. Tall hedges of box and yew survived in 1916 but most had gone by 1992. By 1880, the garden was more formal, with an avenue from the house to the farm and a layout of paths to the west (main front) and north with a pond.
