West Wycombe Park is the elegant Palladian home of the Dashwood family and historic village
West Wycombe Park is one of the most theatrical and Italianate of all English country houses and the Dashwood family home for over 300 years. Set in 45 acres of landscaped park, the house as we see it today is the creation of the 2nd Baronet in the 18th century.
This Palladian gem is frequently featured in screen adaptations of literary classics such as Cranford and Little Dorrit and more recently in the television series, Downton Abbey.
West Wycombe is a historic village with bags of charm. Its streets are lined with cottages and inns of varying architectural styles, dating from the 16th century through to the 18th century.
Explore the village and then make your way up West Wycombe Hill for breathtaking views over the surrounding Chilterns countryside and designed landscape of West Wycombe Park and village.
Other delights in the village include churches, a mausoleum, caves (not National Trust) and a variety of gift shops and stores.
