This National Trust owned estate is the countryside residence of the Rothschild family. The 16th century manor house is surrounded by over 200 acres of parkland and 30 acres of beautiful formal gardens. The house itself has a superb collection of paintings, furniture and oriental porcelain.
Please note the House and Gardens are only open to members of the public between March and September.
Ascott House is located near Leighton Buzzard. It's not far from the Grand Union Canal - a good option if you'd like to continue your walk.
