Tranquil Elizabethan manor house set in beautiful gardens.

The home of the Dryden family since its construction, Canons Ashby has survived more or less unaltered since c.1710.

The intimate and atmospheric interior contains wall paintings and Jacobean plasterwork of the highest quality.

There are also a formal garden with colourful herbaceous borders, an orchard featuring varieties of fruit trees from the 16th century and a surprisingly grand church - all that remains of the Augustinian priory from which the house takes its name.
