Ascott Park
Wing
Leighton Buzzard
Bedfordshire
LU7 0PR

Originally a half-timbered Jacobean farmhouse, Ascott was bought in 1876 by the de Rothschild family and considerably transformed and enlarged. It houses an exceptional collection of fine paintings, Oriental porcelain and English and French furniture.

The extensive gardens are a mixture of the formal and natural, containing specimen trees and shrubs, a herbaceous border, lily pond, Dutch garden and remarkable topiary sundial.

This property is owned by The National Trust.
