As the house is a collection of medieval buildings behind a Georgian facade, it is not suitable for wheelchairs as even the ground floor is not on one level. However, everyone’s disability is individual and there are chairs at intervals for a visitor to rest. To see the first floor there are flights of stairs – one up and another down.


A visit to Stonor is one of wonder and awe, from their extensive gardens and parklands, to the wide selection of trees in the arboretum, Stonor really doesn’t disappoint. I was blessed with amazing weather on the day that I visited, however it must be said, even if your not lucky enough to get great weather, I would still highly recommend a visit. I don’t normally do favourites in my books, however my favourite place within Stonor Park is the Italianate Pleasure Garden. It’s calm, ponds, beautiful flowers and perfectly trimmed box hedges would of made even the famous Italianate gardener Harold Peto jealous. In short, Stonor Park isn’t just a place for people who like stately homes, gardens and parklands, it is most certainly a place for everyone and of all ages, this really did hit home the more I explored and believe me, there is a lot to explore!
