Owner description: LOSELEY PARK IS OPEN FROM MONDAY 1ST MAY 2017. SUNDAY - THURSDAY 11AM - 5PM Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty. From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park is sought after for civil weddings, corporate events, and as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility. But it’s also a place to visit, to enjoy the grounds, the garden and house, and relax in one of England’s friendliest historic homes.

Tours of Loseley House are by guide only, which we do not always like - sometimes it is best to explore somewhere in one's own time and without firection - but this was a very informative one, even if the guide was challenged by thefour people on the tour already being fairly knowledgeable about the history of the family and the artefacts in the house! The gardens are well presented and vistors could spend a long time wandering around them.

The cafe was very small and had a limited, pricey menu. This is an area that needs to be worked on, but overall this house is well worth a visit.

A beautifully preserved grand house that Henry V11 Elizabeth 1 and Henry V111 son stayed in. We had a really good tour that was very informative.
Shame the staff at the cafe weren't as good as they were shouting at each other whilst we were there which wasn't very professional.
My quiche wasn't very warm and the salad looked limp and the outside area looked messy and the plants unkempt.
However when we went to look round the gardens they were beautiful!

Thank you for your comments regarding your visit to the Wisteria Tea Room here at Loseley Park.
We are very sorry to have read of your experience following your recent visit.
We take negative feedback very seriously, as we cater for many events and weddings across the year and only usually receive wonderful feedback, so I am deeply apologetic that you were disappointed by the standard of catering on your recent outing. They are certainly comments that we don’t like to receive, however they are vital comments that can only help us to improve and learn from.
We will be reviewing the tea room offering for next year and hope that you will return to see the improvements which are planned for this area.
Please do not hesitate to contact me; should you wish to discuss this with me further.

Kind regards,
Mark Frogley

Timed guided tours only, would have been nice to wander around looking at whatever took our fancy, but tours, while very informative, are very structured. This makes it unsuitable for youngsters who would be bored. Having said that, I loved hearing about the history of the house. I would give the overpriced tea rooms a miss. The gardens are lovely and worth a visit on their own.

This is a beautiful place, inside and out. Set on high ground in endless lawns it has a dreamy quality unmatched elsewhere in the south east. Best visited in bright sunshine.

The interiors are delightful, filled with pieces collected by the family since the house was built in the 1560s, and the collection is still growing today. The guided tours of the house are conducted by very knowledgeable and personable guides.

Outside, there is pretty parkland, a lake and extensive walled gardens to fascinate the plant lover.
