Hampton Court Castle

Hampton Court Castle
Hampton Court is one of the most genuinely romantic houses in England.

Hampton Court is an evocative fifteenth century manor house whose crenulated walls, glimpsed through trees, rise from river meadows like a fairytale castle. Unlike its namesake Hampton Court Palace near London, this ‘other’ Hampton Court (no relation, and begun 80 years before Henry VIII’s Tudor palace) lies secluded from urban frenzy in one of England’s loveliest, little-known and least-changed counties. It is no wonder that those who discover Hampton Court’s discreet charms believe they have found a real sleeping beauty.

It was in the twentieth century that Hampton Court, like many great houses, fell asleep. The conservatory roof fell in, the garden disappeared beneath undergrowth, and successive occupants retreated to the south-west rooms, distributing tin baths to catch drips. From 1994, the house was reawakened by sensitive renovation. The newly-designed gardens opened to the public at the millennium. Thousands have visited Hampton Court, rejoicing in the quality of the workmanship, and relishing its rare Arcadian tranquility.

The centuries-old romance of Sir Rowland Leinthall’s court runs far deeper than any fairytale, but the power of this awakening beauty to capture the imagination remains as great as ever.
