Unchanged for 400 years
A rare gem of a Jacobean country house, Chastleton House was built between 1607 and 1612 by a prosperous wool merchant as an impressive statement of wealth and power.

Owned by the same increasingly impoverished family until 1991, the house remained essentially unchanged for nearly 400 years as the interiors and contents gradually succumbed to the ravages of time.

With virtually no intrusion from the 21st century, this fascinating place exudes an informal and timeless atmosphere in a gloriously unspoilt setting. We do not have a shop or tea-room, so you can truly believe you have stepped back in time.

Important information for visitors

Please note that entry to the house is by timed ticket. All tickets are issued on a first-come first-served basis and there is no pre-booking facility. For conservation reasons, visitor numbers are limited so entry to the house cannot be guaranteed on busy days. To ensure entry to the house, why not book places on one of our special out-of-hours tours and events.
