Trafalgar Park was originally known as Standlynch Park when it was built for Sir Peter Vandeput in 1733 to designs by John James of Greenwich. In 1766 the wings were added to the house by
John Wood the Younger of Bath thereby creating a substantial residence with additional works
by Nicholas Revett.
The house was renamed "Trafalgar" when the estate was acquired by Act of Parliament and given to the brother of Admiral Nelson after his death in 1805 to commemorate the great battle and as a lasting tribute to his heirs. Successive Earl Nelsons lived at Trafalgar Park until 1948 when the estate was sold.
The house and parkland have now been transferred to the Trafalgar Park Trust which is restoring and regenerating these impressive Grade 1 buildings, whilst also serving as a private home.
The house and parkland are available for location filming, photographic shoots, weddings, parties,
corporate days and charity events.
