History

Detailed History

Mildmay House was formerly the Vicarage in Twyford. It had a 14th-century two-storey timber-framed building, a small part of which survives in the kitchen. A raised terrace (bowling alley) on the east side of the walled garden has been dated to Tudor times. In the early-18th-century, the façade of the house was pulled down and replaced with a classical, red brick Queen Anne façade which survives today. A wing, housing an elegant dining room was added in the mid-19th-century. The house was upgraded to Grade II* in 1986.
