Wow! Undoubtably one of the best National Trust properties we have visited. Located in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with extensive grounds, Buscot Park is the family home of Lord Faringdon. Built in the Italianate country houses style between 1780 and 1783, the estate has a fascinating history which has left the estate with a remarkable legacy. There is a variety of attractions - from formal gardens to woodlands. There are plenty of lovely viewpoints and a selection of architectural sculptures adds interest to your visit. Don't miss the stunning water gardens designed by Harold Peto. The house does not disappoint and houses the wonderful Faringdon Collection of fine paintings and furniture collected over a century. With paintings by Rembrandt, Reynolds, Rubens, van Dyck and Murillo and furniture by Robert Adams this is now a very important collection of works. Lovely tearoom on site.
