Chenies Manor House online: information and bookings

Home of the MacLeod Matthews family, this C15 & C16 century Manor House with fortified tower, is the original home of the Earls of Bedford. Visited by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, she was a frequent visitor, first coming as an infant in 1534 and as Queen she visited on several occasions, once being for a six-week period. The Bedford Mausoleum is in the adjacent Church. The house contains tapestries and furniture mainly of the C16 & C17 centuries, hiding places, and a collection of antique dolls. Art Exhibitions are held throughout the season in the restored C16 Pavilion with its unusual cellars.

The Manor is surrounded by enchanting five acre Gardens, famed for the spring display of Tulips, which has been featured in many publications and on television. From early June there is succession of colour in the Tudor Sunken Garden, the White Garden, Herbaceous Borders and Fountain Court. The Physic Garden contains a wide selection of medicinal and culinary herbs. The Parterre has an ancient Oak and complicated Yew Maze while the Kitchen Garden is in Victorian Style with unusual vegetables and fruit. Attractive dried and fresh flower arrangements decorate the house. Our renowned annual Plant & Garden Fair will be held Sunday 19th July 2009 from 10am -5pm (The Manor house opens from 2pm) with exhibitors from some of England’s best nurseries.
