Stancombe Park

  • Earlier Houses: An earlier house burned and was replaced by the current house in the 1880s.

    Built / Designed For: P.B. Burnell

    House & Family History: The Romans built villas near the natural springs that pour forth from the limestone hills on the site of today's Stancombe Park. A fire gutted the original Stancombe House in 1886, after which it was rebuilt exactly as it had been. The West Facade of the House incorporates elements from The Ridge, a Gloucestershire house demolished in 1934.

  • Garden & Outbuildings: Stancombe is noted for its Romantic Garden, created circa 1840, which contains cascades, grottoes, a lake, a temple, and pavilions with conical roofs. In the late 1980s a formal garden was laid out to the south of the House.
