Greys Court Reviews

4 stars
Review by Edward Lever(15th July 2014)

An interesting Elizabethan House and Estate
Greys Court is a National Trust property in South Oxfordshire, within easy reach of Reading to the south, or Henley-on-Thames to the east. The site comprises a pretty Elizabethan House, outbuildings and walled gardens. Originally, there was a much older fortified settlement on the site and remains of this are to be seen in sections of walls and in the three remaining towers. Greys Court is situated in the unspoilt Chiltern Hills, which is classed as an AONB (an area of outstanding natural beauty). There are also extensive walks through the adjoining woodland for the more adventurous. At first sight, Greys Court is not a stately home in the normal sense. It was very much a lived-in home until recently, before transfer of ownership to the National Trust. It is well worth taking the tour of the house, to appreciate the history of the place, even though the scale is much smaller than many other stately houses. The south-facing gardens are a glorious mixture of traditional English flowers, fruit and vegetables and at one time would have provided produce for the estate. Other features worth viewing are the Tudor Donkey Wheel (for drawing water from the well), the Ice House, and a Maze. In summary Greys Court is well worth visiting, but do not expect a grand estate with formal gardens. Even so, you should allow at least three hours for a visit to the House and Gardens.
4 stars - Good
