This is a house with a fascinating history'. The paintings and objects are really interesting and well displayed. The cafe is good and the grounds and garden worth spending time walking around.

Deene Park is the home of the Brudenell family. Check for opening times as the family still live there and the house is not open all year. The building is magnificent, particularly as you arrive and look across to it from the car parking area....More

Some beautiful plantings and areas of the garden are laid out in “rooms” which always pleases. Some nice lake walks and also woodland walks - you can clock up 4 miles or so easily. Well worth a visit especially if you are in the HHA

House and Garden costs 10 pounds or 9 with consession and for children aged 5 to 16, the price is just 5 pounds. If you just want to visit the garden, adults cost 6 and children 3 pounds.
