Whenever you visit, Ascott Estate delights. A great day out in Buckinghamshire, it offers enchanting gardens in which to relax and recharge. In Spring, wonder at an extraordinary array of vivid daffodils. In Summer, seek shade beside the dappled lily pond.
In the House, history abounds, from exquisite turquoise porcelain to evocative oil paintings by Turner, Gainsborough and Stubbs.
Around the Estate, watch for wildlife, listen for peaceful birdsong and enjoy beautiful countryside views across the Aylesbury Vale.
Before leaving, pick up a gift to remember your day or purchase a plant grown by Ascott’s own gardeners to recreate some floral Ascott magic at home.
Ascott is now closed until 19th March 2024.Getting Here

Around the House
“A palace-like cottage, the most luxurious and lovely thing I ever saw” – Mary Gladstone
With its Tudor-style, black and white facia, Ascott House looks every inch the prestigious hunting lodge. Step inside and it feels calm, loved, and lived in. Despite the fascinating collections of fine art and furniture, it’s every inch the family home.The House
In the Gardens
Our beguiling gardens are an intriguing mix of formal and natural. Elaborate features and landscape vistas meet leafy dells and modern art. Fountains, sculptures and structural hedging sit side by side with playful spirals and grassy mounds.Gardens
Open-air theatre. Musical fairy tales. Running carefree around the lawns. Telling the time on a giant topiary sundial. Spotting shapes among the clipped hedges. Exploring the House with our Children’s House Trail. Tucking into an afternoon tea. The perfect place for a family adventure.What's on
