Stonor Park is set in a valley deep in the Chiltern Hills.

Wander around the walled Italianate pleasure garden with its herbaceous borders, two rectangular ponds, topiary and gazebo.

The old Kitchen Garden is lined with apple and plum trees.

Explore the Arboretum and the Park with its herd of fallow deer. Walk to the top of the hill and look back at the magnificent house and walled gardens.

Don’t miss the Stone Circle dating back to the last Ice Age. One of the boulders supports the corner of the Chapel – in 601AD, Pope Gregory the Great had written that temples of the idols should not be destroyed but instead ‘converted from the worship of devils to the service of the true God’.
