Welcome to Thorndon Hall

Seated within nearly 1000 acres of old deer park, woodland and two golf courses, Thorndon Hall still retains much of the character of its original tranquil 18th Century setting.  Only 2 miles south of Brentwood town centre and only 25 minutes by train (Shenfield or Brentwood Stations) from Central London it offers the perfect retreat from urban life with all the benefits of having London on your doorstep. 

Built between 1764-1770 by the eminent architect James Paine with interiors by Samuel Wyatt and landscaping by Capability Brown, Thorndon Hall stands within extensive parkland to the south of Brentwood, Essex and only 25 miles East of Central London. This grand stately home was built as a replacement to Thorndon Old Hall (now a ruin within the park) and was originally the principal family seat of the Barons Petre of Writtle, one of Britain's wealthiest land owners and one of the country's most prominent Catholic families. The family moved to their other seat of Ingatestone in the early 20th century and now the house has been converted into private luxury apartments and cottages.
