Kentchurch Court, thought to be one of the most important historic houses in England, has been in the Scudamore family for almost 1,000 years. Kentchurch Court and the Deer Park nestle under Garway Hill, surrounded by an Estate, comprising of some 5,000 acres.The house has undergone various changes since the Scudamores arrived to live in the tower in 1058. Significant building took place in the 14C to be “modernised” by John Nash in 1795 and again in the 1820s by Thomas Tudor.

Kentchurch Court has been used for various film locations over recent years including Channel 4’s Country House Rescue in 2011.
