Clandon Park

Clandon Park is one of the country’s most complete examples of a Palladian mansion. Built by a Venetian architect for Lord Onslow in the 1720s, the estate has been passed down through generations of this famous family.Magnificent interiors are faithful to the period, featuring original stucco ceilings and marble fireplaces, the most impressive of which are in the awe-inspiring Marble Hall.Left to us in 1956, the house was refurbished under the guidance of interior design legend John Fowler. Today the house contains a superb collection of 18th-century furniture, porcelain and textiles, much of which was acquired by the remarkable connoisseur Hannah Gubbay.While the wider parkland is still in the hands of the Onslow family, you can still see seven acres of gardens that surround the house. These are home to a small parterre garden, the walled Dutch Garden and Hinemihi, a Maori meeting house brought back from New Zealand in 1892.
