Welcome to Deene Park, Corby, Northamptonshire

 
 

          Visitor Information

 

A most interesting house, occupied and developed by the Brudenell family since 1514, from a mediaeval manor around a courtyard into a Tudor and Georgian mansion.  Visitors see many rooms of different periods, providing an impressive yet intimate ambience of the family home of many generations.  The most flamboyant member of the family to date was the 7th Earl of Cardigan, who led the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava and of whom there are many historic relics and pictures on view.
 
The late Mr and Mrs Edmund Brudenell, inherited the house in the 1950's and took considerable care in restoring the house room by room following the Second World War.  During the war the estate and the house had been used as a barracks to house various regiments; the wear and tear left the house in a dilapidated state.  The gardens have also been improved during the last thirty years or so, with long, mixed borders of shrubs, old-fashioned roses and the addition of a parterre in front of the south patio. 
The estate is now owned by Mr Robert Brudenell who recently inherited upon his fathers death in October 2015 and he lives in the house with his wife Charlotte, their son William and 'Noffie' the family dog.  
In the tradition of their forebears the current Mr & Mrs Brudenell are delighted to welcome visitors to their home and garden.
The rooms on view are regularly used by the family and their friends and contain a large collection of family portraits, furniture and memorabilia.
