Ugbrooke House and Park

Ugbrooke House and Park

It has a history covering over 900 years, featuring in the Domesday book of 1086, and exhibits a fascinating variety of alterations made over the centuries.

Robert Adam and 'Capability' Brown were commissioned to remodel the house, grounds and garden in the mid 18th century. Outstanding Adam interior designs and unique external features remain, while Lady Clifford's extensive interior design skills are apparent in many of the rooms today.

 

Permanent collections

The House contains fascinating and rare insights into the family's history with a fine collection of paintings, military paraphernalia, exquisite furnishings, tapestries and needlework, furniture and porcelain. The fine Adam library contains a fascinating collection of historical documents.
