Canons Ashby

Garden

Built by the Drydens using the ruins of a mediaeval priory, the house and the gardens have remained largely unchanged since 1710 and are shown as they were during the time of Sir Henry Dryden, an ancient Victorian who was passionate about the past. The warm, inviting house features large rooms, beautiful tapestries and Jacobean plasterwork, contrasting with the domestic details of the servants ' quarters. Stroll through the historic parkland and catch a glimpse of early mediaeval scenes, while a stroll through the Priory Church tells the tale of the Canons of Ashby.
