Some of the best Chilterns countryside close to our Chartridge care home

Have you heard of Hughenden? If you haven’t then you’re about to see a whole new world as it’s one of our favourite National Trust properties – and it happens to be rather close to Portobello Place care home in Chartridge.

Hughenden is a Victorian Manor and was home to Benjamin Disraeli, who you may know as Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister. As his home from 1848 to 1881, this spectacular building has seen political drama, royal visits and holds a variety of secrets too, with Disraeli known for his captivating personality and rather colourful private life.

In addition to the fantastic collection of personal memorabilia inside, there’s all sorts to explore outside, with over 680 acres to discover. With Italianate-style formal gardens, terraces, lawns, beech woodlands and landscape views in the parkland, the whole place is waiting to be explored.

At Portobello Place, we’re so pleased to be just 20 minutes away from Hughenden, and we can’t wait to take our residents and those here for respite care to this stunning estate soon.
