Buscot Park & The Faringdon Collection
Buscot Park is the family home of the Lords Faringdon, who look after the property on behalf of The National Trust.
The beautiful Georgian mansion contains an extraordinary collection of furniture and objets d’art, which includes paintings by Rembrandt, Reynolds, Rubens, Murillo and many more. Its Saloon was decorated with a series of paintings called The Legend of the Briar Rose by the Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones.
The gardens below and beyond the mansion are exciting and easy to explore. The “Four Seasons Garden” is set within the high walls of the old vegetable garden and offers year round interest with floral borders and sculptures. The Pleasure Gardens are divided into five sections by tree-lined avenues that lead to a citrus garden, a “Swing Garden”, the tallest sundial in England, a lake, and the world famous Water Garden cascade designed by Harold Peto in 1903.
