Loseley Park

 

The present Manor House was built by Sir William More during the reign of Elizabeth I between 1562 and 1568. At that time the total cost of the house was £1,640.19s 7d.

 

A good deal of stone was used from the ruins of the Cistercian Waverley Abbey near Farnham, which was destroyed by Henry VIII and is now some 860 years old.

 

Today the sophisticated interior and stately gardens play host to film stars such as Kate Winslett, Johnny Depp, Felicity Kendall, Martin Clunes, John Nettles, Pam Ferris and Michael Kitchin, who have enjoyed filming here.

As well as being

the family home

of the More-Molyneux Family,

Loseley Park is also a prestigous

venue for weddings, conferences, banquets and dinners. Additionally major shows are held here throughout the year. A full programme, can be found by clicking HERE.
