Waterperry House is a large country house, set in 83 acres of its own grounds, surrounded by farmland, about 7 miles east of Oxford. It is used extensively as a residential centre for retreats. It sits on the same site as Waterperry Gardens - a substantial and very well known horticultural centre, open to the public seven days a week. The beautiful and very well-kept gardens, cover some eight acres, and there is an open air theatre for use in the summer months.
The house itself is medieval in origin, with Jacobean and Georgian additions. The local Parish Church stands a few metres from the house. A feature of the house itself is a renovated hall area which includes a large fresco, painted in the traditional fresco way. Taking six years to complete, and covering three storeys, it depicts scenes taken from Advaita philosophy.
New projects include a newly restored Ice House and the walled garden providing vegetables for the kitchen and cut flowers for the house and teashop.
