Mapledurham House is an Elizabethan stately home located in the civil parish of Mapledurham in the English county of Oxfordshire. It is a grade I listed building, first listed on 24 October 1951. The property was first held by Michael Blount and has remained with the family for 400 years. Building was started around 1585, at the time of the Spanish Armada, in the classic Elizabethan E-shape. It includes a late 18th century chapel built in the Strawberry Hill Gothic style for the recusant Roman Catholic owners of the house. The estate covers much of the village including Mapledurham Watermill and part of the church. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapledurham_House
A 12th Century family house and farming estate tucked in beside the Thames in the heart of a unique English village away from the distractions of town, business or busy hotels, Mapledurham is an oasis of peace. The estate is a haven of tradition coupled with a sustainable commerce to maintain the estate viability and ensure its longevity.
We have a diverse range of operations on the estate and these include a dairy farm, a hydro electric Archimedes screw turbine, traditional watermill for flour, an arable farm, golf course, several commercial lettings, tea room, art studio, and a country events park, to name but a few. http://www.mapledurham.co.uk/
