Ashdown House


Unusual Dutch-style house on the Berkshire Downs

It was built by an Earl, William Craven, as a house fit for the queen he loved, Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia in 1662.
Access to the house is by guided tour only at 2.15, 3.15 and 4.15, for up to 25 people at a time. House is tenanted and access is limited to hall, staircase (100 steps ) and roof.
