    Tottenham House is the centrepiece of the historic Tottenham estate in Wiltshire, England. The grade I listed house has 103 rooms and mostly dates from the 1820s when it was remodelled by Charles Brudenell-Bruce of Ailesbury. Set in forestry land that originally stretched for over 100 square miles, the extensive estate was partly used as a deer park and the deer still roam the lands to this day.

    The estate was the home of Jane Seymour, the third wife of King Henry VIII, who died giving birth to the future king Edward VI. Henry VIII, a keen deer-hunter, regularly stayed there as a guest of Sir John Seymour, Jane’s father.

    The Ailesbury family lived in Tottenham House and shared it with the US Army during the Second World War. They moved out in 1946, at which point Hawtreys Preparatory School used the house until 1994.

    In 1966 the house was designated as Grade I listed, and the 50-horse stable block and octagonal folly in the deer park were designated Grade II listed.
