HISTORY

The glorious ruins of a Tudor mansion stand beside a stream, on the site of a 13th-century house. In its day Cowdray was home to one of the most powerful families at the courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. Ruined by a fire in 1793, Cowdray is a shell, but what a shell! The Tudor facade is one of the most imposing and impressive in the country, and the inner courtyard is entered through a fabulous ruined gatehouse.

WHY THIS PLACE

The house is astonishing; the walls stand to a quite remarkable height, like a glorious stone shell rising above the surrounding parkland. You can climb to the top of a surviving tower and look down on the house and the nearby polo field. It's an amazing view, and really gives you a sense of just how impressive this house must have been in its heyday.

CURIOSITIES
