Welcome: An ancient estate surrounded by magnificent parkland with beautifully restored house and gardens.

Godinton is a comfortable, much-loved home; each room has a different feel, a contrast on a theme, not designed by architect or curator but for the taste and enjoyment of those who lived here over the centuries and now for visitors.

Tours of the house are led by expert guides unraveling the 600 years of history and revealing an excellent country house collection of furniture, art, porcelain and curios.

Enjoy delicious homemade cakes and refreshments in the old Billiard Room.

The famous yew hedge surrounds the formal gardens with the wild, Italian and walled gardens beyond, full of colour and interest through the seasons.

Events, courses and workshops are run throughout the year to be enjoyed by all.

Godinton is an excellent teaching resource tailored to suit individual needs.

A working estate with lovely walks, close to the picturesque village of Great Chart.
