Visitor Welcome and Retail Volunteers love to greet people and welcome them to Claydon and help people enjoy their day. From promoting National Trust membership, to helping people find something to remember their day.  Claydon House is an unexpected jewel nestled within peaceful parkland and beautiful gardens. A rich treasure trove with a fascinating history, just waiting to be explored.

The house today stands as a shadow of its noble owners’ ambitions; a grand country house that never quite was. Within its walls, spectacular spaces delight and surprise. Elaborate decoration, carvings and chinoiserie take you on a journey through eighteenth century style. Claydon was created under the ethos that money was no object, only the finest would do… but then the money ran out.

Help visitors to discover the remarkable story of one family's fluctuating fortunes as they venture back and forth in time within this remarkable house.
