Welcome to Chenies Manor House and Gardens

Elizabeth MacLeod Matthews with her dogs

This historic and enchanting Tudor Manor House with its Award Winning Gardens is set in the charming  estate village of Chenies in Buckinghamshire overlooking the Chess valley.

The architectural historian Nickolaus Pevsner described the manor house as:

"Beautifully mellow under the trees by the church, and archaeologically a fascinating puzzle"

The 22 individual cut brick chimneys distinguish the manor house and are echoed throughout the estate village.

From the picturesque village green a private gravel drive leads invitingly up to the Manor House. Immediately outside the gates is the church of St Michael, together with the private Bedford Chapel. The front gates open into the Inner Court, leading to the house and gardens. Guided tours of the house are available.
