About Polesden Lacey

Given to the National Trust in 1942 by the Hon. Mrs Ronald Greville, Polesden Lacey is renowned as the home of the legendary Edwardian hostess. The 1400 acre estate includes two farms, the regency villa, formal grounds plus woodland and Ranmore Common to the south. Polesden Lacey was purchased by the Grevilles in 1906 and was refurbished by Mewès and Davis, architects of the Ritz Hotel, into a house fit for royalty. The collection is of national standing and includes significant collections of majolica, porcelain, Dutch old master paintings, silver, furniture and objects d’art.
