Visited Buscot Park for first time last week and will definitely go back to explore further. The gardens are lovely, so well kept. Very interesting house. Good tea room and lots of parking. One of the best NT places we have been to.

This property contains the most amazing art collection displayed in a beautiful domestic setting. The grounds are superb and quite the best gardens I have seen outside of Italy. It is also obvious that the gardens are much loved by the Henderson family who are...More

We had a wonderful afternoon here. The house is in lovely condition as you expect when this wealthy family live in it half the year. In some ways, it is a collectors’ gallery with noble Lord’s acquiring fine artefacts to decorate their home and show...More

Gardens were beautifully groomed with a lovely undulating walking layout encompassing many objects of interest. The planting was varied and interesting, particularly in the walled garden. Was nice to think that it is still a used family home. Room fact sheets were very informative. Ecclectic...More
