Owner description: LOSELEY PARK IS OPEN FROM MONDAY 1ST MAY 2017. SUNDAY - THURSDAY 11AM - 5PM Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty. From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park is sought after for civil weddings, corporate events, and as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility. But it’s also a place to visit, to enjoy the grounds, the garden and house, and relax in one of England’s friendliest historic homes.

Enjoyed a nice visit to Loseley Park with beautiful gardens and a great house. The gardens were smaller than I had anticipated but well worth seeing. Particularly enjoyed the White garden with the white hydrangeas and small pond. Recommend you arrive early to enjoy the sights and fragrances around the various gardens and lovely scenic views by the lake. Café served excellent food and beverages and prices compatible with NT properties. However, they would benefit from more toilets as only 2 plus a disabled near the entrance. The House is worth touring as many pieces of lovely furniture and artefacts to see and our guide was very informative. Please note the post code on Sat Nav does not get you to the entrance and I advise you follow the Brown Tourist signs.

Enjoyed our visit to the Loseley House with a group of study abroad students. We booked a catered lunch at the Chestnut Lodge which was a nice facility across the lawn from the main house. The catering far exceeded our expectations--high quality, diverse selection, very good. Our guided house tour was very informative, and we were amazed at the depth of history in this seemingly out of the way place. Likewise, we did not expect the unadvertised gardens to be anything spectacular, but they were incredible and expansive across multiple sections. A garden tent in the white garden would suggest this is a popular venue for weddings, and it's easy to see why. Excellent visit, and the folks we communicated with to plan our group visit were highly accommodating and easy to work with. Thanks.

The house is still today a family run house. The grounds are lovely but not huge. You can do the tour in approx an hour the walled garden was under going renovation.

On a very warm, sunny afternoon we wandered round the beautifully cared for gardens, marvelling in particular at the height of the hollyhocks and the huge, white blooms on the hydrangas in the white garden. A peaceful, tranquil garden with plenty of seats in the shades to rest and take in the views. Then we went on a conducted tour of the house. This was taken by Mary, an extremely knowledgeable guide who told us the house and family history.This was explained clearly with added touches of humour. The history is remarkable as this house has been lived in by the same family for over 500 years. And Mary was able to take us through this without needing to resort to notes. She was happy to answer any questions and again seemed to have the knowledge at her fingertips. Loseley are lucky to have her as well as their beautifully cared for house with touches which showed it is a much loved family home. We were just a little disappointed not to meet the Irish wolfhound we heard pinches the guides' lunches!

The gardens here are beautiful and well worth a visit.We came here on a beautiful sunny day and the walled gardens were a haven of peace and tranquility. We had a guided tour of the house and and our guide was exceptional,happy to answer all our questions and with a wealth of knowledge.He was a real gem , full of quiet enthusiasm and courtesy. The only real downside was the Wisteria cafe,the food was expensive and not very good.May be we were just unlucky that day but the Victoria sponge was heavy and inedible and the soup very watery . We were not the only customers to be disappointed and an elderly couple were complaining about the food as we left. Apart from this it was an enjoyable experience,but be wary of the food at this particular cafe.
