Stonor has been the home of Lord and Lady  Camoys and the Stonor family for over eight hundred years. It is set the  beautiful Chiltern Hills with commanding views of the surrounding deer park.

The house is of considerable architectural interest - built from c.1190 and  constructed over many centuries. It is a family home containing many items of  rare furniture, paintings, drawings, tapestries and sculptures from Britain,  Europe and America. The house is built on the site of a prehistoric stone  circle.

The medieval Catholic Chapel was used continuously throughout the years of  Catholic repression. It was a sanctuary for St Edmund Campion in 1581, and an  exhibition features his life and work. Mass is celebrated in the Chapel every  Sunday throughout the year.

The house is surrounded by beautiful hillside gardens containing splendid  displays of daffodils, narcissi, irises and roses.
