Bulstrode Park is a Grade II* park listed on the ‘Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England’.
While its evolution as a designed landscape can be traced back to the late 17th century, it was
Humphrey Repton who redesigned the pleasure grounds in the early 19th century.
Portus and Whitton were consulted to research, analyse and understand the complex layers of history that led to its current condition. Important landscape elements were identified to be retained and refurbished and, to create an appropriate and high quality setting for its new role as an hotel, to design a new landscape setting which develops the existing character of walled gardens and open vistas.
The new courtyards, parterre gardens and dining terraces have been designed to be both sympathetic to and an enhancement of the ‘Spirit of the Place’ as well as helping the buildings become fit for purpose for the 21st century.
