Simon Jenkins (journalist and author) wrote in “England’s 1,000 Best Houses”; “Stanford is the perfect William & Mary House.  When seem from the road, the south front floats like a palace of romance across a distant meadow”.

Stanford has been the home of the Cave family, ancestors of the present owner, since 1430. The Hall was built in the 1690s with the oak avenues that radiate from it, which in turn are flanked by two man-made lakes with meadows that stretch beyond to the woodlands on the horizon. Throughout the house are portraits of the family and examples of furniture and objects which they collected over the centuries. There is also a collection of Royal Stuart portraits and a walled Rose Garden.
