Heythrop Park Resort
Enstone, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire,
Heythrop Park built in the early
18th Century is steeped in history. Charles Talbot, the 12th
Earl of Shrewsbury commissioned the architect Thomas Archer
to create a magnificent house incorporating all the Roman
influences Charles Talbot had grown so passionate about
during his time in Rome.
The house passed through
generations, until 1820 when it was leased to the Duke of
Beaufort who used to bring his hounds from Badminton in
Gloucestershire to hunt what is now Heythrop Hunt country.
Heythrop Park is a unique
combination of state of the art conference facilities within
impressive historic surroundings. There are 17 luxurious
bedrooms set in the main house all beautifully decorated,
with panoramic views across the estate and a further 238
modern bedrooms in the wings joining the main house.
