Queen Victoria's trusted prime minister Benjamin Disraeli lived here from 1848 until his death in 1881. Most of his pictures, furniture and books remain in this, his private retreat from the rigours of parliamentary life. The garden is a recreation of the colourful design of Disraeli's wife Mary Anne. Beautiful walks through the surrounding park and Chilterns woodland.
