Own a mansion steeped in rich history
- It was requisitioned by the army during WW2, with the officers quarters in the main house while Italian prisoners of war were actually kept on site, leading to Dancers Hill House to be become officially known as Camp 33. (I can send you as much historic information as you require).
- Whilst staying at Dancers Hill House, on 2nd March 1935, Viscount Hugh Trenchard, who was Marshal of the RAF, sent a letter to Sir Percy Grigg, regarding the possibility of an impending war
- After the war Lady Mary and General Naylor occupied the house, along with their family. Lady Mary was a relative of George Byng
The house has been in film and was the original Chuckle House
As seen here in an episode featuring Harry Hill, the house featured regularly as the original Chuckle Manor in the 90s. It was also the backdrop for the 1999 TV adaption of Great Expectations – owner Melanie’s son was an extra.
More information on the home
Located just 14 miles from Central London, the house sits on the land of a former mansion that was built c1500. A yew tree was planted in the front of that house and still remains today over 500 years later! It is rumoured that prior to Queen Elizabeth 1 becoming Queen, she stayed at the house as it is midway between Hatfield House, where she lived and London.
Dancers Hill House, was built in 1760, as a folly! ( a fancy building in a large garden for decoration and amusement! ) It was extended several times
in the early and late 19th century.
