Stonor Park

What’s it all about?

Stonor park is a beautiful country estate near Henley. It’s still lived in by the Stonor family and has been for the last 850 years! The house and grounds, gardens and views are magnificent, making it a wonderful place to hang out and explore, especially on a sunny day. 

At certain times of the year you can look around the house and chapel, although the main attraction for families is the Wonder Woods playground. This is a really nice natural style play ground sitting within interesting trees and grassland.

The planners have done a great job of thinking of little kids as well as bigger ones. The area itself is fenced in. Our 7 year olds had a wonderful time exploring by themselves for well over an hour, whilst we supervised our younger children in the sand and water play area (obviously we kept an eye on them!!).

Another highlight is the beautiful gardens – a perfect place for playing and exploring. 

When we visited it was Easter and we were able to take part in the special Easter trail and climbing activity which were both great fun.

Where and When

The Wonder Woods are open April to November. For exact times its best to check their website especially as times for the house and chapel vary.

Stonor Park, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 6HF



What else you need to know

Pricing: For the Wonder woods and gardens £6. 50 per adult, £5.50 per child (but check their website)

Pushchairs/Prams: The paths are all surfaced so technically not a problem although the wonder woods area is quite undulating.

Cafe/Restaurant: the shop sells a small selection of sandwiches and drinks but best to take a lunch with you. There is an indoor area to sit and eat as well as outside benches.

Toilets: good clean toilet facilities (I forgot to check for baby change facilities but I would expect there to be some)

Other: The car park is right next to the play area so it’s easy to grab lunch etc from the car without needing to carry everything with you. Also, the area itself is not massive, so happy walkers could ‘toddle’ happily without a pram as you are never a million miles away from the car.
