For many generations Ashburnham Place was the historical home of the Ashburnham Family. In 1960 the house and 220 acres of surrounding parkland were given to the Ashburnham Christian Trust by John Bickersteth. Today Ashburnham Place is still stewarded by the Ashburnham Christian Trust and is home to a serving community of Christians from many traditions.
We are set in 220 acres of stunning grounds and gardens with three lakes and an abundance of nature. We aim provide a place for retreat, rest, refreshment and connection for people from all walks of life.
Ashburnham Place is also home to the Orangery Tea Room, which is open to the public and serves the highest quality teas and coffees alongside fresh, locally sourced food. The spectacular Orangery, designed in 1777 by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, houses delicate plants of many kinds including some of the oldest camellias in the country.
