Buscot Park is the home of the Henderson family and the present Lord Faringdon with his eldest son James and his wife Lucinda. They look after the property on behalf of the National Trust as well as the family collection of pictures, furniture, ceramics and objects d'art, known as the Faringdon Collection, which is displayed in the house.

Built between 1780 and 1783 for a local landowner, Edward Loveden Townsend, the estate was purchased in 1889 by Lord Faringdon's great-grandfather, Alexander Henderson, a financier of exceptional skill and ability, who in 1916 was created the 1st Lord Faringdon. He greatly enlarged the house, commissioned Harold Peto to design the famous Italianate water garden, and laid the foundations of the Faringdon Collection. Among his many purchases were Rembrandt's portrait of 'Pieter Six', Rossetti's portrait of 'Pandora', and Burne-Jones's famous series, 'The Legend of the Briar Rose'.

Among his many purchases, his grandson and heir, Gavin Henderson, added considerably to the collection, acquiring important furniture designed by Robert Adam and Thomas Hope, and was instrumental in returning the house to its late eighteenth century appearance.

The family, together with their fellow Trustees, continue to add to the collection, to freshen its display, and to enliven the gardens and grounds.

It is impossible to pick a number one UK garden - there are so many different styles - each with their own merit(s), however the gardens at Buscot House, taken as a whole, have to be in the UK top twenty. My favourites at Buscot House are the Peto Water Garden (including the steps to it) and the Walled Garden... 更多

I was quite surprised how few visitors were here, as National Trust properties normally get ridiculously busy on weekends. I assume the limited opening hours must put some people off. The formal gardens have been landscaped beautifully and there are several stunning vistas to take in. It was also nice to see some interesting sculptures. We had tea and homemade... 更多

We spent a day with Bath Decorative and Fine Arts Society at Buscot. The tour of the house was the highlight with assistant curator Roger who really brought the house and its history to life. The Faringdon Artcollection is superb and the house and beautiful manicured grounds are well worth a visit. Its a hidden gem.

We are fortunate to live nearby to the beautiful village of Buscot. Owned and managed by the National Trust it is a peaceful little haven worthy of a visit. One can park in the village, there is a little shop and tea rooms, and walk through to Buscot Lock, on the River Thames. The lock and gardens are managed beautifully... 更多

The grounds, lakes and formal gardens are always a picture to behold. Being local, we often visit just to sit quietly and watch the world go by. If you try hard, you can pretend it all belongs to you for a couple of hours and then go home and let someone else do all the hard work. Tea rooms only... 更多

This house is well worth a visit. There are elegant rooms, sumptuous fabrics, beautiful modern glass sculptures and some unexpected surprises. Each room has a plentiful supply of informative room cards to add to one's enjoyment and knowledge. The gardens are well manicured with overflowing borders and the Chinese warriors are great fun. The volunteers obviously enjoy their duties.

Buscot Park is not far from where we live so we love to go there for walks. The grounds are amazing, very well looked after by the gardeners. A camera is a must. The house is beautiful also. Even if the car park is full, the grounds aren't overcrowded. An excellent place to visit.

A lovely place to visit on a sunny day. Easy to find, plenty of parking, tea room/refreshments and an interesting house with a lovely art collection but the star attraction is the lovely gardens with tree lined walks to interesting features and a stunning lake. Fans of pre-Raphaelite art will love the works by Burne-Jones, Rossetti and Millais and there... 更多

I didn't know much about thins property so was pleased to find it had so much to offer. The ticket office lady was very pleasant. The gardens were especially beautiful with a surprising display of statues hidden within it. The house had quite a few rooms on show. The most interesting was a back bedroom with a good collection of... 更多

The one member of staff I encountered on my visit, Teresa in the ticket and INFORMATION office, was without doubt the rudest person I have had the misfortune of meeting. I explained I wasn't happy with lack of information given when purchasing my ticket regarding accessibility of the grounds and would be making a complaint to which she shrugged her... 更多
