The history of Little Easton Manor can be traced back as far as the 11th century, with the current house built on the site of much earlier buildings, traces of which were discovered during the 1920's in the ancient walls of the Cellars which date back to Roman times.

Recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Estaines Parva,' the original 17th century manor house, which replaced a medieval castle at the time considered to be the centre of Little Easton village, was extensively rebuilt during the Victorian era, with further renovation works carried out during the 1920's when the Countess of Warwick (subject of the famous music hall song 'Daisy Daisy') sold the property to her daughter's husband Basil Dean.


During the 20's and 30's, several films were made in the grounds, including 'Midshipman Easy' and an Edgar Wallace thriller; the boathouse which proudly sits at the edge of the Great Lake was purpose built for one of them. During the wartime years, the Easton Lodge Estate was used by both the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Force as a wartime airfield, before being purchased by the Lady Inchscape and then the Pedley Family who renovated much of the Barn Theatre and more of the house and grounds.  


To this day, the current owners continue their sympathetic and careful restoration of the entire Grade II listed house, its extensive grounds and the iconic Barn Theatre - one of the finest tithe barns in the country which underwent major refurbishment during the Countess of Warwick's time at Little Easton Manor to create a fully functioning theatre where the like of Charlie Chaplin, HG Wells, George Formby and Gracie Fields have all performed, and which now offers a beautiful venue space for private hire and weddings.
