Explore the beautiful Ascott House

The half-timbered Jacobean Ascott House started life as a modest hunting box and then country retreat back in the late 1800s when Leopold de Rothschild set his sights on it but later became much grander as successive family members made their mark. Now it houses an amazing collection of works of art with some spectacular examples of French furniture. Anthony de Rothschild is credited with the lovely collection of 400 pieces of Chinese ceramics plus some fine English furniture. The house’s wonderful portraits and paintings include those by Gainsborough, Romney Reynolds and Stubbs – liberally dotted amongst the lavish rooms. Outside, clipped hedges, topiary and flowering shrubs frame a typical English estate. But this one was created for love – Leopold de Rothschild had it laid out by garden designer Sir Harry Veitch in 1902 as a wedding present to his wife and the topiary sundial states in clipped yew: “Light and shade by turn, but love always'.

Ascott also has a Garden:
