Deene Park has been the home of the Brudenell family for 500 years since 1514 and was the seat of the 7th Earl of Cardigan who led the Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854. The largely Tudor house with important Georgian additions is surrounded by historic gardens set in beautiful parkland views. Visitors see many rooms of different periods, providing an impressive yet intimate ambience of the family home of many generations.
The gardens are the lifetime work of the late Mr. Edmund and the Hon. Marion Brudenell. They comprise a David Hicks parterre with topiary teapots, long mixed borders, ‘four seasons’ garden with a spectacular planted font and circular hornbeam hedge, stone summerhouse, lakes and wild gardens. The current owners, Robert and Charlotte Brudenell continue to welcome visitors to the family home.
During your visit you can enjoy afternoon refreshments in the Old Kitchen tea room.
A selection of garden plants and gifts are available to buy from the shop.
