Description

Ascott

Jacobean house remodelled in the 19th century, with superb collections and gardens

Originally a half-timbered farmhouse, Ascott was bought in 1876 by the de Rothschild family and considerably transformed and enlarged. It now houses a quite exceptional collection of fine paintings, Oriental porcelain and English and French furniture. The extensive gardens are a mixture of the formal and natural, containing specimen trees and shrubs, as well as a herbaceous walk, lily pond, Dutch garden and remarkable topiary sundial
