Reveley lit up for Christmas

Reveley Lodge is a large, Grade II listed, Victorian house, on Elstree Road, Bushey, now run by a board of Trustees set up by Bushey Museum Trust, to whom the property was bequeathed by its last owner, Mrs Eila Chewett. For the early part of it's life, Reveley Lodge has acted as a 'Gentleman's Cottage' - a small country house easily reached at the weekend from the owner's principal home in London. The Lodge has a two acre garden managed by professional gardeners assisted by a number of volunteers. The garden is open to the public on weekdays and is a member of the National Garden Scheme. Groups can visit the house by prior arrangement and a number of other events are held in the house and garden throughout the year. Please see the 'Events' tag for further details.

A visit to Reveley is not complete without taking tea and refreshments at Mabel’s Vintage Tearooms which is located in the Billiard Room. This very popular venue has excellent reviews and further details can be seen on the menu bar above.

The house acts as host for school parties taking part in Bushey Museum's popular 'Victorian Experience' for primary school children and many local schools have taken part.
