The Grade II listed mansion used by Charles I as a hunting lodge

Henley Park in Normandy, Surrey sits in seventeen acres of stunning parkland.

Grade II Listed Henley Park, currently on the market at a guide price of £1.295m is a beautiful mansion house with origins dating back to Domesday.

From the Black Death to royalty, sexual scandal and a role in the Second World War effort, Henley Park has many tales to tell. Charles I enjoyed the property as a hunting lodge, with its imposing position on a ridge north of the village of Normandy, set within parkland, with views over woodland to the Hogs Back.

Normandy can trace its history back to the Conqueror, whilst Henley Park was part of the royal Forest of Windsor as early as the 12th century. After a succession of royal and noble owners it finally passed in to private hands around 1630. It was rebuilt in the Georgian style and was finally restored in 1998.
