Stansted House

Stansted House

Historic House / Palace

Stansted Park stands in 1700 acres of parkland and ancient forest on the Hampshire/Sussex border, overlooking the coast. In 1983 the 10th Earl of Bessborough gave Stansted Park, the Arboretum, his family home and its beautiful contents to the public. The historic house and grounds are now also a spectacular venue for weddings and prestige corporate events all year round.

The Grounds and Walled Gardens are open all year, this includes the Arboretum, The Pavilion Tearoom, The Stansted Park Garden Centre, The Farm Shop, The Maze & Railway (both subject to change) and the Play area.

Stansted Forest is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year and managed to conserve wildlife habitats. The private chapel and The House with its splendid mansion rooms and the fully furnished Servants' Quarters below stairs are open to visitors from Easter to the end of September. School visits and pre-booked group visits are always very welcome.
