A Tour of Denvilles House

Denvilles House was constructed mainly in the 1820s on the site believed to be of the earlier Manor House of the Lord of Wade predating the later ‘Wade Court’.  It is a Grade II Listed building, set in an acre of land with attractive gardens and parking for 60 vehicles.View of Denvilles House from gate
