About / History
The original Tudor Manor House was built in 1495 by the Roberts Dunn family who were gifted the thousand-acre estate when Henry VIII demolished Warbleton Priory. The Priory, situated at the centre of the estate, was rebuilt over the years as a farmhouse. During the Seventies Peter Dunn converted the property into The Priory Hotel, a small country house hotel with an enviable reputation. The Priory is now returned to a private house.
Meanwhile at the family home, Stone House, the original Tudor Manor was further developed with the addition of an impressive Georgian wing in 1735, creating the perfect mix of Tudor splendour and Georgian opulence.
Much has changed over the years, but the unique character of two great periods of English history have been retained throughout the house, from the dark dank cellar to the staff quarters on the second floor. Stone House and many of the features of the estate are now listed Grade II*.
Not only a family home, Stone House has always been a working estate and continues to provide excellent winter shooting and grazing on the parkland. For several years it was a successful pre-prep school. The school bell can still be found in the kitchen beside the AGA and is often used for calling order.
