This is a national trust property run by the owners of the house. Everything is well organised and well sign posted. The house itself is interesting with stewards to answer any questions but the grounds are absolutely stunning. There are many walks and it would...More

We had a wonderful afternoon here. The house is in lovely condition as you expect when this wealthy family live in it half the year. In some ways, it is a collectors’ gallery with noble Lord’s acquiring fine artefacts to decorate their home and show...More

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours here - first in the house which is lovely and very interesting with the Farringdon Collection. It was a shame about the rather unfriendly austere lady stewards though. We then had a stroll through the different sections...More

Buscot opens at 2pm and as we were there in good time, had to wait in a short queue to get tickets, which are required even for NT members who are free. The car park is quite convenient for the ticket office, then there is...More

I visited on the promise of the paintings in the collection at Buscot House. Works by the big names, Rembrandt, Botticelli, Rubens are almost eclipsed by the incredible vivacity of Murillo's Triumph, that hangs above the stairs to the first floor. The Burne-Jones Sleeping Beauty...More

We pre-arranged a visit to see Buscot Park as it has limited opening times. The House is beatiful, lots of art collection with Rembrandt's, Van Dyke's nemes on them.The history of the house is very interesting. The Park, the garden ( designed by Peto) itself...More

This house has classic lines, almost Palladian. Although in the care of the National Trust, it is managed on their behalf by the owner, Lord Faringdon. Because the family still live here, the actual rooms you can visit are quite limited. Those you can have...More
