Horton Court

Sadly, it seems that as the house is now let out by the National Trust, it’s no longer possible to view this remarkable building. But if you get the opportunity, go!

From the grass terrace, climb up the steps to the loggia. Built by William Knight between 1519 and 1521, the Ambulatory lies at right angles to the house.

Steps lead down from the Ambulatory to an area of grass with a few fruit trees and some terraces. The fishponds are cordoned off while the swimming pool has been replaced by another area of grass.

On your visit, pop into the Romanesque hall house next door. It was built c1140 with later additions.

The main house at Horton Court has been let to tenants. The website is no longer accessible. It is not known when this important 16th building will again be open to the public.

Owned by the National Trust.
