Welcome to the

Downes Estate


Downes is the family home of the Buller and Parker Family.  It is still lived in by the current generation of the family – Henry and Susan Parker and their children Redvers (born 1992) and Stroma (born 1995).

The attraction of Downes is the way it brings together aspects of the history of our country (particularly as the home of the famous General Buller) and the history of a family home, still privately occupied and loved by its owners, some 300 years after it was first built.  It is hoped that visitors will appreciate the opportunity to share this special place.



Downes Estate open 27th and 28th August

The house is open to the public for guided tours at 2.15pm for the August Bank Holiday Monday and Tuesday. Admission prices: Adults £7.50 Children (5-16 years) £3.75 Groups (over 15) £6.00 each adult and £3.00 each child (groups must be pre booked)
