Ascott Wing
Leighton Buzzard

Jacobean House remodelled in the 19th century with superb collections and gardens. Originally a half-timbered farmhouse, Ascott was bought in 1876 by the de Rothschild family and considerably transformed and enlarged by them. The extensive gardens are a mixture of the formal and natural, including a lily pond, Dutch garden and remarkable topiary sundial.
