Upton House and Gardens

(2 votes)

Upton House was the country residence of Lord and Lady Bearstead in the 1930's and in 1939 they vacated it to allow the family-owned Merchant Bank to move in and escape London's air-raids. Those days are currently being recreated with rooms dresed as though the staff had slipped out for a coffee break.  Outside there are stunning terraced gardens leading down to a mirror pool which is always full of fish.  There is lots to keep children occupied including a woodland adventure trail, treasure boxes and often games on the lawn.There are usually family activities available during the school holidays.

Please note that pushchair access may be restricted in the house but babyslings should be available to borrow.
