About this property

  • Elegant Poston Court Estate stands on the site of a medieval deer park high in the Herefordshire hills, looking out over a vast swathe of the glorious Golden Valley to the Black Mountains and the Forest of Dean.

    The original Georgian casino was designed in 1765, by Sir William Chambers, architect to the King and rival to Robert Adam in British neo-classicism. More international in outlook than Adam, William Chambers designed a great number of our outstanding buildings, including Somerset House. Additions to Goodwood House, Newby Park Peper Harow in Surrey and work to Milton Abbey in Dorset, as well as garden ornaments and interior decorations at Blenheim among many others.
