HISTORY Although our estate has a recorded history of over 900 years, it was John Penn (17601834), a soldier, scholar and poet, who was responsible for most of what can still be seen at the estate today. James Wyatt, architect to George III, worked on the development of The Mansion and monuments from 1790 to 1813. In 1791, Humphry Repton was commissioned to upgrade the Lancelot “Capability” Brown landscaping of the grounds. The estate was used as a private residence until 1908. Nick “Pa” Lane Jackson, founder of The Corinthians, purchased the estate and created Stoke Park, Britain’s first Country Club. One of his first objectives was to commission the famous amateur golfer and course architect Harry Colt to design the golf course.

The first President was His Highness Prince Albert of SchleswigHolstein and the first Vice-President was the Right Honourable Earl Howe. In his 1910 book, The Golf Courses of the British Isles, Bernard Darwin wrote: “Stoke Park is a beautiful estate, and there is very good golf to be played there. There are plenty of things to do besides playing golf. We may get very hot at lawn tennis or keep comparatively cool at bowls or croquet, or, coolest of all, we may sit on the terrace or in the garden and give ourselves wholly and solely to loafing.” With such highly acclaimed names associated with the estate, each of the Mansion rooms have been titled after the historical figures. We have our Lancelot Suite, named after Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, who designed our beautiful landscape, and our fantastic Coke Suite, which is named after Sir Edward Coke, a former owner of Stoke Park and a prosecutor of Guy Fawkes. When staying in our rooms, guests can enjoy being a part of the spectacular history here at Stoke Park. For a complete history of Stoke Park please visit www.stokepark.com

STOKE PARK IN THE MOVIES Stoke Park has always had a close relationship with Pinewood Studios (5 miles away) and the British film industry. Two James Bond movies; Goldfinger (1964) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), were filmed here at Stoke Park. The epic duel between James Bond and Auric Goldfinger is still considered to be the most famous games of golf in cinematic history. The famous ‘mini-break’ and rowing scenes from Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) were filmed in the Great Hall, the Pennsylvania Suite and on the lakes with Hugh Grant, Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth. In 2004, three movies were released all featuring Stoke Park: Wimbledon, Bride & Prejudice and Matthew Vaughn’s Layer Cake. Stoke Park features in many of Layer Cake’s scenes including the dramatic ending with Daniel Craig and Sienna Miller, filmed on the Mansion’s front steps. Guy Ritchie’s 2008 movie RocknRolla features the grass tennis courts and the 21st green. In 2010, we welcomed Madonna to Stoke Park to film scenes of her Wallace Simpson biopic, W.E and in 2012, Cameron Diaz and Oscar winner, Javier Bardem, shot scenes on the golf course for Ridley Scott’s movie, The Counselor. In 2019 Stoke Park made its debut in the The Crown, welcoming Oscar winner, Olivia Coleman.

OUR LUXURIOUS BEDROOMS Stoke Park has 49 luxurious bedrooms and suites (21 in the Mansion and 28 in the Pavilion) and holds the coveted 5 AA Red Star rating. The Mansion bedrooms are more traditional in style and are all individually designed and furnished with fine art, priceless antiques, large comfortable beds, marble bathrooms and most have open fires. The Pavilion bedrooms have a luxurious contemporary feel. The carefully chosen furnishings, exquisite marble and fabrics are of the highest quality. The walls are adorned with hand-made mirrors as well as modern, iconic artwork, including oil paintings, large photographs, Andy Warhol lithos and film posters.
