What an absolute gem we stumbled upon while out and about in Bucks!! The house is a stunning beauty, the garden is spectacular, the church moving and intimate. The hour long tour was informative and entertaining (Russell was fantastic!) We really appreciated the family's generosity in allowing tours of their ancestral family home. I've honestly never seen any house as old, beautiful, and lovingly cared for before. Also, the many generations of family portraits showed the Palmers to be an absolutely good looking bunch no matter what century they lived. Great day out!

Great place to visit - beautiful Tudor house and gardens. It is open to the public some dates each year, so check their website. You may have seen it feature as a location in several films. We had a guided tour with Louise who was brilliant and told us so many interesting things about the house.

Having always wanted to visit Dorney Court and never actually managed to pick a date when it’s open to the public we actually managed to visit today. The fact that we didn’t know anything about the history of the property or the residents over the centuries made things even more interesting having a guided tour. I won’t spoil anything other than to say that the name Dorney means bee island.

Bursting with history. A rather grand building with Royal gardens. We did not catch opening times unfortunately but enjoyed a walk in the grounds

We were the wedding DJs here for Luci and Rich at the weekend at had a brilliant time. Our rustic DJ set up looked fantastic, we were really lucky with the weather and had the doors open most of the night. It was soo cool watching people dancing around the fire pit to our music!
Everything went seamlessly thanks to the team here who were unbelievable and a pleasure to work with.

Andrew Stafford was our guide at Dorney Court on 29th August. He regaled us with stories and historical facts about the house and family for an hour and a half. It was absolutely fascinating. Thank you.

I visited Dorney Court with my mother. The tour of the house was conducted by Andrew, who was a most engaging and informative guide.

Many thanks to the Palmer family for opening up their home for a few weeks a year so we are able to view such a stunning historical building.

The excellent knowledge, enthusiasm and presentation style of our tour guide Andrew was attention grabbing. His knowledge of this important part of English history was gripping. His passion and personal connection to Dorney Court made the experience almost spellbinding.

Such a stunning place to visit! I was surprised not to find 5 coaches of Far East visitors there.
We’ve also had a fab lunch next door 😋
Got welcomed at the door by the lovely lady Anna, who owns the place, so lovely of them to share their beautiful home with others!
Everything there just sets you back in time. Very beautifully preserved property ❤️
